Distributed system or reuse-oriented program development system may call for software reuse library (SRL, repository) to serve as a resource provider by the usage of reusable software components. We are trying to solve the problems of storing and classifying, locating/retrieving, and delivering the large number of software components through the SRL in an effective way. In this thesis we report on the design and construction of a prototype software system, DORLM (Distributed Object-based Software Reuse Library Module), used to investigate the integration of DBMS (database management system), IRS (information retrieval system), NLP (natural language process) and CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) for software reuse and reuse-oriented program development in a distributed computing context. The DORLM provides an effective way to store, retrieve, and deliver reusable software components as an aid of reuse-oriented program development in the distributed environment.
