JavaTM Virtual Reality Applications and
"Freedom" Service-Oriented Methodology
Principles -- Release
- CM Principle:
Configuration manage all releases
All release archives should be configuration managed for
future retrieval. Legal and other considerations can require
access to old versions at any time.
- Test All Principle:
Test all training; validate all documents
All training materials should be trial taught by the developers.
All documentation should be checked for correctness and completeness
by the test team. Anything not tested or checked is almost certain to
Create Installation Documentation
Installation documentation is created by the developers,
and contains installation and configuration instructions for the
system administrators who will install the application on the
customer's computers. Installation documentation may be in a
README type file or other informal format, unless formal
documentation is authorized by customer management.
Validate Installation Documentation
installation documentation is validated by test team personnel.
Validation includes checking the content for accuracy and clarity
by performing the documented installation and configuration procedures.
Also, the natural language content of the installation documentation
is checked for correct spelling and grammar. Any deficiencies noted
are reported to the development team using any efficient internal
reporting mechanism, such as direct communication with the
Especially on larger or distributed projects, work products should
be stored under the aegis of a configuration management and version
The subset of the development team tasked with maintaining the CM
system creates the distribution files for the
release group after all code test and documentation validation
tasks have been successfully completed. The distribution files for
the release will usually utilize a standard archive format such as
UNIX tape archive (tar), Java archive (jar), or web archive (war).
release archive contains all work products delivered to the
customer such as
object code for the application,
test code and data, and
Populate Reuse Library
Reusable components are also packaged for release by development
CM personnel after all code test and document validation tasks are
completed, but in separate release archives termed
library archives. A library archive contains work products
test code and data, and
test results for the reusable components.
Train Customer Personnel
If authorized by the customer, development personnel create
training materials for the instruction of customer personnel in the
installation, configuration, and operation of the application. and help
train the customer staff if requested. The training materials may consist
of items such as instructor led courses, on-line courses, and tutorials.
feedback from trial use of the training materials is used to enhance
and correct the training materials.
