Coordination Development Environment (CDE)

READ ME file for Version 1.1.2

CDE is a first prototype of a tool supporting the use of Coordination Contracts for Java applications. 
The current version (1.1.2) of CDE also supports the specification of Location Contracts for Java applications.

The CDE requires Windows and Java 1.2 (or later) to work. If you don't have any Java runtime environment, you may get one for free from

To install the CDE, copy the folder CDE-1.1.2 on the CD-ROM to any folder in your hard disk, e.g., the C:/Tools/CDE folder. 
To run CDE just double-click on the run.bat batch file in the CDE-1.1.2 folder. 
You may wish to create a shortcut to the batch file in your Windows startup menu or in the quick launch bar.

The Example folder contains files that demonstrate the CDE specification of location contracts on top of Java components.

Any comments and bug reports on CDE are most welcome and should be sent to 

We hope you enjoy the CDE and find coordination contracts and location contracts fun and useful for your work!
