Title: DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT API FOR MANAGING SOFTWARE ARTIFACTS
Authors: Wong, Chi Chong
Keywords: Document Management Application Programming Interface
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: This project is about the development of a Document Management Application Programming Interface (DMAPI) interface for dealing with capturing and preserving software artifacts using a document-oriented approach. The proposed software development life cycle is based on object-oriented methodology using Unified Modelling Language (UML). This project proposes a basic framework for preserving formal knowledge from knowledge workers. It is essential to implement a document repository in such a way that is accessible via any web-based infrastructure and providing a more convenience way for document accessing. Moreover, the details of an artifact stored are being preserved as documents in its native formats. A document handler is proposed to act like a container or hierarchy of various versions of modification and annotation that attached to the document. These documents can be accessed by referring to the root reference of the document tree via path. The documents ontology, file extensions or any other alternative difference that are generally unpopular will be implemented via the proposed Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), which will be able to differentiate the likely fine components of the document types. Finally, yet importantly, with this proposed DMAPI in place, software developers can further enhance and extend related business domains using this extensible framework in the near future.
