Paper Abstract

The permanently growing world-wide network infrastructure, allows more flexible distributed software development. Version and configuration management systems are the state of the art support for development teams. Distributed version and configuration management systems are usually employing the client/server scheme, where the client must be installed on the local machine under a specific operating system. This results in an update-problem of the only locally installed clients, when a new version of the client-software is required and has to be installed on all clients. The locally installed clients become even more problematic when extended functionality should be supported. To overcome this problem we have developed a scheme to provide a legacy version and configuration management system as Jini-services which are retrieved by an initial thin client.
