Abstract
ParaTools, Inc. will leverage its tools and expertise in scientific software performance evaluation to create an advanced, horizontally-integrated framework called IQB for the fast, scalable collection and retrieval of information about software program symbols and symbol interdependency. The resulting open-source software indexing tools and data-enabled diagnostic utilities will aid users of any existing build tool or software configuration management system to resolve build portability issues faster. Commercial Applications and other benefits: IQB will benefit the public at large by 1) reducing the cost and time-to-market required to produce integrated applications and 2) increasing the quality of those applications. The National Laboratories and other Federally funded developers and users of large in-house scientific computing applications will benefit greatly by the increased ease of detecting and removing software construction process defects in these applications. The time needed by developers to reach a complete and correct portable build will substantially decrease, enabling them to spend more time on improved features and capabilities instead. Other open-source and commercial sector developers of large software suites may also profit from the increased software quality and decreased cost of integrated applications
