Abstract : The Joint Warfare Simulation Object Library (JWSOL) produced a joint warfare simulation requirements document in 1994. This second document provides the object-oriented, hierarchical design, or taxonomy, that embodies the functionality specified in the requirements document. The purpose of JWSOL has been to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept of a basic set of objects within a single joint service repository such that the objects are owned and maintained by the separate Services but are available within one virtual repository for reuse by all, thereby eliminating redundancy and improving accuracy and currency Future work will concentrate on iterative coding and on redefining requirements. The JWSOL project and its products have provided the initial baseline of requirements and design for other programs, including the Joint Program Office for the Joint Simulation System. JWSOL products provide a means by which others interested in warfare simulation can make use of existing design and code, eliminating costly duplication of effort.
