The main objective of the proposed project is to develop and validate a generic framework for Software Configuration Management (SCM), which will pave the way to the realisation of technically and commercially viable private spaces incorporating ambient intelligence features.
For this purpose the project will specify and develop the COMANCHE modular and scalable architecture targeting the provision of consistent, secure, low-cost (low-effort) SCM services across today's heterogeneous, and multi-vendor environments. The realisation of the COMANCHE SCM services framework will be built on an adequate software engineering and knowledge management infrastructure that the project will deliver.
The main components of this infrastructure will be the following.
- The COMANCHE Knowledge Management Framework which will provide the means for effectively conceptualising, organizing, discovering, and exploiting the tremendous amounts of (currently unorganised and scattered) attribute information, pertaining to software configuration management.
- A modular component-based software architecture and an adequate design methodology and tool, which will effectively address the engineering and run-time management of reconfigurable software for ambient intelligent networked services environments.
- A formal modelling methodology and a consistency validation framework for capturing and analysing the structure and run-time behaviour of distributed software systems.
This approach will aim to preserve the integrity of the target networked services environments in terms of allowing software-configuration error detection and recovery across present complex, and multi-vendor private spaces.
