<p>The authors describe the design of ISHYS, an intelligent software hypertext system, and discuss novel applications that such a system can support. In designing ISHYS, they sought to support the software life cycle from a 'web of computing' framework, which necessarily requires the consideration of sociotechnical factors influencing and influenced by the software life cycle. ISHYS supports functionalities that include influencing work interactions on the basis of social interactions and determining tools and their options on the basis of project status information. Implementation of required enhancements to DIF (documents integration facility), the authors' current software hypertext system, has been completed using Prolog, C, and X Windows.</p>
