Software Engineering Institute

CMU/SEI Report Number



Four environment builders and participants at two workshops were queried concerning the environment standards, implementations, and technology that prove useful in the integration of tools into software engineering environments. Specific information was gathered about the software and hardware environments in which tool integration occurred, the goals of integration, the tools integrated, mechanisms used, and the standards applied. Observations concerning the current state of tool and environment integration are provided, and trends in integration are identified.
