OOS collaboration in higher education in China
The increasing popularity and use of Open Source Software (OSS) has led to significant interest from research communities and enterprise practitioners, notably in higher education in China where this type of software offers particular benefits given the financial and human capital constraints faced. Software Technology assumes the mission of improving Intellectual Property (IP) and software innovation in China. The research looks at implications of the emerging IP regime for China and its attempts to improve software technological capabilities. The paper outlines how OSS can support the educational process of Software Technology in general and the WEB Application Development in particular. The primary objective is to identify suitable tools from the open-source landscape and then validate and prove their integration within a real-life Application Development scenario.
