Application development over software-as-a-service platforms uri icon

Abstract

  • New web development and deployment platforms are arising; some examples of these are Apex of Salesforce.com, Google Application Engine SDK, Facebook API, and so on. These Software Delivety Platforms (SDP) are meant to serve as the basis for the delivety of an important percentage of the software offer. In the other hand, application development over these new platforms is not a defined process. Building applications over an SDP change the way software is designed, developed and delivered. Common methods of software development should be analyzed and redefined in order to fulfill the requirements of these new ways of constructing and delivering software. This paper presents the analysis of the impact of these requirements and proposes guidelines to be applied for application development in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) environments. ¬© 2008 IEEE.
