Building Collaboration into IDEs
An ACM Queue piece about IBM's Jazz collaborative IDE project.

It is important to realize that different languages will impose different granularity constraints on collaborative IDEs, since the definition of "local change" is language dependent.

Will we some day have collaborative IDEs that continously monitor contract changes, and notify the programmer when he makes unwarranted assumptions and when the changes he is making to his code are going to cause breakage elsewhere?

One small example pulled from the past using the wayback machine...

Remote Messaging in the Bytesmiths Toolkit for Smalltalk.

The shared workspace with hyperlinks is just a small example, but the underlying toolkit would support more kinds of collaboration.

Yes, I would hope going forward we have more expressive models aiding the development process.
