Collaborative Software Engineering, Software Artefacts, Componentbased development


This paper describes an environment that allows a devel opment team to share knowledge about software artefacts by recording decisions and rationales as well as support ing the team in formulating and maintaining design con straints. It explores the use of multi-dimensional design spaces for capturing various issues arising during develop ment and presenting this meta-information using a network of views. It describes a framework to underlie the collab orative environment and shows the supporting architecture and its implementation. It addresses how the artefacts and their meta-information are captured in a non-invasive way and shows how an artefact repository is embedded to store and manage the artefacts.
