Integrated hypertext and program understanding tools

by P. Brown
This paper describes some concepts and issues related to software tools integration. Questions regarding data integration and functional integration between tools are identified and discussed. Some techniques for handling large volumes of data are briefly described. A prototype tool is described in which hypertext links are automatically created between program analysis data and hypertext documentation. With this tool, end users can freely move between source code views and related documentation. A common annotation feature lets software developers and information developers share information and synchronize maintenance activities in a single tools environment.
