Special Issue: Software/Knowledge Sharing and Reuse via Networks; Guest Editors: V.R. Benjamins and D. FenselNo Access


    The Summary-based Object-Oriented Reuse Library System (SOORLS) was developed to support both librarians who manage databases of object-oriented reusable components, and software developers who intend to use these components to develop software on the Web. This paper presents the library management functions implemented by SOORLS, with focus on a software reuse approach based on the summary contents of the library. The cluster-based classification scheme proposed in this paper alleviates the labor-intensity domain analysis problem often attributed to traditional facet-based classification schemes. We then concentrate on the facilities offered by SOORLS' tools, as well as its Web-based architecture, which allows distributed access to reusable components on servers from a variety of platforms.
