Abstract:Collaborative development of software products across organisational boundaries in software ecosystems adds new challenges to existing software engineering processes. We propose a new approach for handling the diverse software artefacts in ecosystems by adapting features from social network sites. We promote artefacts to first-class citizens in such networks and specify different types of relationships between artefacts and actors. This helps in detaching tacit knowledge from vendors, suppliers, developers and users of an ecosystem and fosters easier management of software artefacts. We discuss this by example scenarios and present a prototypic implementation.
