Senior Project - ASDI


A Graphical Interface to Automated Software Distribution

Senior Project: 1991-1992
Jan Bergseth, Keith Grandin, Jeffrey Hartkopf and Hege Larsen
Boulder, CO

Annatek Systems' products are designed to distribute software applications and data from a central site to end users and automatically install the software or data without any user intervention. Existing platforms included IBM Mainframes, Personal Computer Workstations running DOS, DOS Windows, and OS/2 operating systems. Annatek Systems wanted to add UNIX workstations to its product line.

The project was to produce a UNIX implementation that provides the same set of functionality as the other platforms, but in a native interface. The functionality needed to be accessible from both a command line and an interactive graphical user interface. This involved the development of a database server, along with clients which provide the user interfaces. The software was written in C, using the X Window System and the Motif user interface toolkit.
