Abstract"The Phase I research and development performed by ArchitectureTechnology demonstrates the feasibility of building a debug-and-test system for distributed-object environments. During Phase Ithe ability to capture, decode, and playback method invocationson CORBA-compliant distributed objects was demonstrated.Features were identified for DOTS that would enable testing anddebugging of distributed objects in a manner similar to thatprovided by source-code debuggers.In this proposal, we outline the tasks necessary to implementDOTS software built on top of our in-house distributed capture-and-playback software. Additionally, new user interfaces thatprovide more intuitive views of object interactions, as well asa simulated playback feature, are presented and will be builtduring Phase II.BENEFITS: The benefit of DOTS is the reduction of deployment and maintenance costs related to the development of CORBA-compliant distributed systems. A Phase II goal is to incorporate the DOTS software into the Combat Control System Module Off-HullAssembly Test Site of the Virginia-class submarine program.The final result of this Phase II effort will be "shrink wrap" software offered through Architecture Technology Corporation's existing distribution channels. The software will be marketed to both military and civilian system developers."
