1.3 The modeling project

The project was done at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute for Software Systems Engineering. The idea behind the project was to show students a way to master the complexity of a real software product. Apache is a HTTP Server developed by many volunteers and used by many companies all over the world. Most important, its source code is available. Therefore it is an interesting object for a modeling project. We soon learned that a lot of information about configuration and administration of Apache exists, but little about implementation details aside from the source code.

More details of the seminars of 2001 and 2002 can be found at ( [3])

A result of the project was a set of models describing various aspects of Apache and its environment which formed the basis of this document.
