Kernel/2r - a software infrastructure for building distributed applications
Kernel/2r is a software infrastructure that provides the integration platform for the construction of distributed process-oriented multi-user/multi-role systems. Kernel/2r includes different process engines that enable the enactment of formally defined process models thus assisting users in staying in line with procedures and regulations implied by law or by the environment they are working in, i.e. business rules of the organization or ISO 9000 quality standards, for instance. In this paper we demonstrate the appropriateness of Kernel/2r as a basis for the construction of application systems in the engineering domain as well as in the commercial domain by discussing the IRIN Software Factory and the OTIS on-line ticket vending system.
