ABSTRACT

CARDS Technical Concept Document 

     This document describes the technical concepts employed towards the
development of the CARDS Command Center Library.
     The Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) program
is a concerted DoD initiative to transition advances in the techniques
and technology of library-aided, architecture-centric, domain-specific
software reuse into mainstream DoD software procurement. This technology
transition effort involves the development of a domain-specific reuse
library for researching technologies and methodologies for creating
reuse libraries.
     CARDS views a reuse library as reusable software components, a
library model and supporting library applications. This view, and it's
consequences on library development are presented in this document. A
discussion of model-based reuse library infrastructure presents a
model-based view of library development, with an emphasis on
distinctions between domain and library modeling.  The component
qualification process is presented as an integral part of the library
development process. Modeling of the command center library has evolved
to support development and integration of various reuse library
applications. The CARDS system composition and component qualification
tools are discussed. This document also presents technical aspects of
the operational library, such as distribution options (e.g., AFS), reuse
library security issues (an overview of the CARDS security analysis is
presented), and advances made in interoperation between reuse libraries.
