ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_466:  RLF (Reuse Library Framework) Source Code, version 4.1
     The Reuse Library Framework (RLF) is a software system designed and
implemented to enable the development of application-area (or domain)
specific  reuse libraries.  The framework has been implemented in Ada,
using basic  principles of software engineering, and is both extensible
and integratable  with other Ada systems.  The RLF includes a semantic
network subsystem and a  rule-driven inferencing subsystem which are
used to record domain knowledge and  heuristics in a form suitable for
use within Ada applications.  Besides the  creation of several kinds of
librarian applications, the RLF has been used to represent process model
descriptions, capture Ada and heuristic testing information for use by
an Ada unit test plan generator, and to actively aid a  documentation 
specialist in producing structured technical documentation from 
templates and a knowledge-based model of the document production
software being  used.
     See the ASSET Librarian for ready-to-run binaries for the Sun4
with or without Portable Common Tool Environment (PCTE) support.
