We just had a site reorg with a link to the RAVEWiki where we will be collaborating on the requirements specification. Join up!

Studies (eg Standish, 1995 et al) show that poor requirements are a prime cause of project failure or insufficiency, yet commercial requirements tools are very expensive. There exists no full-featured Open Source Requirements Architecture tool. This project intends to fill that gap, integrating with other Open Source CASE tools to provide a complete Open Source CASE environment.

Mission

Read More

It is intended that RAVE be the foundation of a complete Open Source Engineering environment. Tigris was selected as the hosting site specifically because of the wealth of Open Source CASE tools being developed here.

RAVE will be written in Java to run on Linux, Solaris(TM), and other Unix(TM) variants. It will be server-based and multiuser under the control of an administrator. Sub-administrators for particular partitionings of the requirements may be set up. Security will be a consideration from the onset of the project. Internationalization will be very low on the priority list unless we acquire a contributor who likes to do this sort of thing.

Join the Wiki!

RAVE is meant to be easy to use, and we want it to be easy for project members to help in developing the requirements for the program. So, we've created a WikiWiki - a collaborative site - to do just that. Try out the RAVEWiki. Don't worry if you've never used one because all the instructions you need are on the site!

RAVE is licensed under the (IBM) Common Public License, one of the OSI-certified license types, just on the general principle that IBM's tracks are good ones in which to walk.
