  • Patent number: 5495610
    Abstract: A method for creating and electronically distributing a new release of a software program in a computer system having a number of processors is disclosed. One of the software programs is modified. An impact analysis is performed to identify modules to be modified as a result of the modification. A new release of the software program is built by modifying the identified modules. Typically, the new release is built in one or more repositories. The new release is stored in a central storage device. It is determined which processors require a copy of the new release, and the new release is electronically down-loaded from the central storage device to each processor. A down-load complete message is issued at each processor upon completion of the download. An install order is transmitted to each of the processors to which the new release was down-loaded. The new release is installed at each of these processors. The new release can be installed concurrently at each processor.

  • Patent number: 5295222
    Abstract: A computer-aided software engineering facility and method for creating computer source code and executable computer programs that are distributable across multiple hardware environments or platforms. An object oriented modeling system is linked with modules of a computer programming language and other system components to quickly and efficiently design computer source code and executable computer modules that have a high degree of reusability. The modules and models are stored in a centralized storage area and distributed to the various hardware elements that comprise the computer system.
