Dependency management often suffers from labor intensity and complexity in creating and maintaining the dependency relations in practice. This is even more critical in a distributed development, where developers are geographically distributed and wide range of tools is used. In this book, domain ontology is proposed to manage development objects and to automatically support dependency-link discovery. The proposed method based on usage of ontology throughout the whole system development life-cycle. Therefore,
in the book, methodological aspects discussing the process of information system development from the viewpoint of the proposed method are elaborated. The proposed method is useful in management of development project and its deliverables (development objects). The potential benefits of the method are its efficacy in discovering dependency links. The method is implemented in a prototype system that allowed validating the method in an empirical evaluation using two real cases. The experiment and results are discussed in the book demonstrating effectiveness and efficiency in discovery of dependencies among development objects.
