Senior Project - Comet


An Improved Software Configuration Management System

Senior Project: 1993-1994
Lynne Gibson, Marc Latour and Stephen Sanford

Software Configuration Management (SCM) is especially important to Auto-trol from a quality software development standpoint. The existing SCM system was built as a collection of tools which used a set of common interface routines to access a database of source code management information. An ongoing problem with the SCM system was the database, which was a single-user database ported from a PC. This project focused on replacing the database with a multi-user database appropriate for use in a Sun/NFS network environment. Tool enhancements to improve the flexibility of the system were also made. This involved configuration of a third-party database for use in the SCM system, reimplementation and extension of the database interface routines to work with the new database and to support the new tool functionality, and modification of the tool set to provide the needed enhancements. The work was done in C in a UNIX workstation environment.
