application lifecycle management

The administration and control of an application from inception to its demise. Application lifecycle management (ALM) embraces requirements management, system design, software development and configuration management. It implies an integrated set of tools for developing and controlling the project. See requirements management, system development life cycle and configuration management.


An earlier client/server development system from Novell that supported Windows and Mac clients. It included Novell's Visual AppBuilder programming tool, which was used to create applications by linking pre-built Application Loadable Modules (ALMs) together. ALMs communicated with each other over a "software bus" known as the AppWare Bus.

Foundation libraries for Windows, Mac, OS/2, NT, Solaris, HP and UnixWare were originally created to provide cross-platform portability. However, in late 1994, Novell dropped the libraries, while continuing with Visual AppBuilder for Windows and Mac. Some of AppWare's Visual AppBuilder features and functionality were carried forward in Novell's exteNd product suite.
