A Framework for Pervasive Traceability
Graduate Student

Traceability relationships help stakeholders understand the many associations and dependencies that exist between software artifacts created during a software development project. Unfortunately, due to the heterogeneous nature of these artifacts, creating, maintaining, and viewing these relationships is extremely difficult. Currently, capturing these relationships is costly and error-prone.

We propose a new approach to traceability based on techniques from open hypermedia and information integration. Open hypermedia and information integration provide generic techniques for establishing, maintaining, and viewing relationships between software artifacts. Our approach customizes these techniques to allow the automated creation, maintenance, and viewing of traceability relationships in tools that software professionals are accustomed to using on a daily basis.
