Abstract

Maintaining any software is difficult. Whenever an evolutionary change is made to the base version of a program and the new version of the program is created, changes made to the base version of the software must be made to the new version. The answer is to build the software initially with the knowledge that it will change and that the base version will evolve. In other words, change-merging of software is a possible solution. All the work in this area has been done on program integration, change-merging of PSDL programs and software prototypes. The present work explores the possibility of combining the results of two independent updates of an abstract data type into a merged version that is both correct and safe. This report describes a developing theory for semantics-based change-merging of abstract data types.
