Abstract

The Web will impact software development and maintenance in several respects. Not only applications will have a Web-based gate, but they will be developed in a Web-centric environment. Such a geographically distributed production environment poses new problems to the fields of configuration management and code analysis. In fact, computation of code merges and ripple effects will be crucial and automatic support is expected to be extremely beneficial. In such a context, several questions remain still unanswered. Some of them are related to the way code construction and modification will be carried out. Others refer to potential improvement areas and the role of support tools. The usability of these tools is another relevant issue. Empirical studies in software engineering and maintenance have the potential to provide some of the answers
