Modeling Next Generation Configuration Management Tools

Mark Burgess, Oslo University College; Alva Couch, Tufts University


There are several current theoretical models used to discuss configuration management, including aspects, closures, and promises. We examine how these models relate to one another, and develop a overall theoretical framework within which to discuss configuration management solutions. We apply this framework to classify the capabilities of current tools, and develop requirements for the next generation of configuration management tools.
