Usage of Open Source in Commercial Software Product Development - Findings from a Focus Group Meeting
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Product-Focused Software Process Improvement/Lecture Notes in Computer Science
Open source components can be used as one type of software component in development of commercial software. In development using this type of component, potential open source components must first be identified, then specific components must be selected, and after that selected components should maybe be adapted before they are included in the developed product. A company using open source components must also decide how they should participate in open source project from which they use software. These steps have been investigated in a focus group meeting with representatives from industry. Findings, in the form of recommendations to engineers in the field are summarized for all the mentioned phases. The findings have been compared to published literature, and no major differences or conflicting facts have been found.
