Package Management Systems
March-April 2012 (vol. 29 no. 2)
pp. 84-86
Diomidis Spinellis, Athens University of Economics and Business
A package management system organizes and simplifies the installation and maintenance of software by standardizing and organizing the production and consumption of software collections. As a software developer, you can benefit from package managers in two ways: through a rich and stable development environment and through friction-free reuse. Promisingly, the structure that package managers bring both to the tools we use in our development process and the libraries we reuse in our products ties nicely with the recent move emphasizing DevOps (development operations) as an integration between software development and IT operations.
Index Terms:
package management system, software reuse, DevOps, shared library, module dependencies
