Program Problem Support System on Upgrading

Disclosed is a system for discovery of program problem automatically and mutually.

1.Problem Statement A corporation informs many kinds of program problem information before/after upgrading a system (ex . from DominoR4 to Domino6 ) , but it is almost impossible to check all program code of many applications manually. A lot of systems check "product version/release" and inform them of upgrading via internet , but not check "Application" ( "program code problem" ) and inform the causes and the solutions via internet. If programmers discover a new program problem, they inform the corporation of the problem.But it often takes a lot of time to inform "the problem fixpack."

2.Proposed Solution This system checks "program code problem" automatically, and informs the causes and the solutions via internet. If programmers discover a new program problem, the system check the problem information, and inform the corporation automatically.So the corporation and the user solve the "program code problem" mutually.

The proposed system works in the following way:

1.The system gets "program problem list" via internet, and checks "program code" automatically.
2.If the system finds a problem, it gets "the causes and solutions".
3.Users confirm these solutions and modify the program code.
4.If users find a new problem, they input the problem into the system.
