Provenance-aware Collaboration Developing Environment

Open-source reuse has been advocated by many open source communities or even some commercial companies. Each coding artifact may be customized and integrated into new offering. Therefore, how to resolve the copyright issue when delivering the new open-source offering will be a serious problem. In our paper, we present a new document structure enabling trusted partition of each developer or company's contribution and thus provide a thorough way to avoid copyright issues. We develop a system called Ariadne based on Eclipse JDT which using proposed document structure instead of traditional ".java" source file to justify our approach. The experimental result shows the data processing efficiency and storage efficiency are both in an acceptable range.
