Building Flexible, Distributed Collaboration Tools using Type-based Publish/Subscribe -- The Distributed Knight Case

K.M. Hansen and C.H. Damm (Denmark)


Tool support for object-oriented modelling, distributed col laboration, publish/subscribe


Distributed collaboration is becoming increasingly impor tant also in software development. Combined with an in creasing interest in experimental and agile approaches to software development, this poses challenges to tool sup port for software development. Specifically, tool support is needed for flexible, distributed collaboration. We intro duce the Distributed Knight tool that provides flexible and lightweight support for distributed collaboration in object oriented modelling. The Distributed Knight implementa tion builds crucially on the type-based publish/subscribe distributed communication paradigm, which provides an effective and natural abstraction for developing distributed collaboration tools.
