Site will offer reusable code

A new software exchange site on the Web will host developers' reusable software and intelligently find and download requested modules to a user's browser, regardless of programming language.

Bob Bolder, chairman and chief executive officer of year-old Codepower Inc. of New York, said the company aims to outsource maintenance of large government software repositories on its servers under password protection.

Intelligent agents developed by the company include a search agent, a so-called snarfing agent to package and compress requested code, and a defraud agent to prevent unauthorized use. Bolder said another agent will do quality assurance testing of posted modules and index their properties, such as lines of code, variables and comments.

The company's site, which will go up this month at, also will sell individual developers' software modules.
