The PROTEUS project

The PROTEUS project is a research and development project which is concerned with solving some of the problems of software evolution. These problems have been tackled by a consortium involving partners from organisations in France, Germany, Norway, Italy and the UK. Partial funding for the project has been provided by the European Commission under its Framework research programme.

Participation by NTH

A group from the Dept. of Computer Science (IDT) at the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) has participated in PROTEUS as a subcontractor to SINTEF DELAB.

We have mainly been involed in:

  • Specification of the PROTEUS Configuration language (PCL)
  • Development of the PCL tool set
  • Repository Server
  • Repository Browser
  • PCL Tool
  • Browser
  • Repository Operations
  • Makefile Generator
  • PCL Reverse
  • Framework activity
  • Persons involved are Bjørn Gulla, Eirik Tryggeseth and Reidar Conradi.
