Anti-patterns and Patterns in Software Configuration Management Summary


Anti-patterns and Patterns in Software Configuration Management by William Brown

Antipatterns are an emerging and controversial new area in the patterns community. Where design patterns identify different types of procedures, designs, or code that worked in object-oriented projects, antipatterns target those common mistakes, defects, errors, or difficult people that can sink object-oriented projects and systems. Configuration Management (CM) is managing the evolution of a software project - managing the revisions or changes to the product after it is first released. This phase is important in a product's ongoing life-cycle because CM helps to ensure that all improvements are implemented in a timely and accurate fashion. In addition, CM ensures that product testing occurs and is accurately documented so that the test findings can be incorporated into improving the design of the product with the next version. This book continues where the first book on antipatterns by this author team left off. In the first book, they focused on the areas of design, architecture, and management, in other words - people issues. With this book, they focus on the area of Configuration Management and document over 20 antipatterns and ten design patterns that exist during this stage of a product's development.

Anti-patterns and Patterns in Software Configuration Management Reviews


"I first heard the term antipattern while reading AntiPatterns Refactoring Software, Architectures, and Projects in Crisis, the first book in this antipattern series (John Wiley & Sons, 1998). I was curious about the term's relation to the concept of a design pattern but soon learned that the main point is understanding which part of a pattern definition relates to the prefix "anti." As the book explains, "An antipattern is a literary form that describes a commonly occurring solution to a problem that generates decidedly negative consequences." Antipatterns clearly define frequent mistakes in software projects and provide solutions. The books in this antipatterns series (which should be read in order) are a result of the authors' attempt to categorize, label, and describe recurring situations in software development that have negative consequences. While the first book comprises 18 antipatterns divided into the three parts according to three different viewpoints software development, architecture, and management the second book, AntiPatterns and Patterns in Software Configuration Management, aims to help management. Managers of software development projects must understand software configuration management (SCM) methods and techniques, and the authors provide the necessary knowledge and experience using antipatterns and patterns." - IEEE Software
