I know of no other book that captures so much in a single source. Thus, I feel that it must be read by those interested in current and future information technology." —Robert H. Holland, PhD Holland Systems Corporation "Repositories are the glue that hold modern Case tools together, and a critical piece of technology for organizations that want to provide automated support for their software development methodologies. Adrienne Tannenbaum’s excellent text provides essential advice for the software engineer and MIS manager to make well-informed choices in the selection of repository tools and products." —Ed Yourdon "A must read for the software practitioner of tomorrow.
