Influence of Remote Management Protocols in Large Scale SW Design.

I had posted this to c.l.f a few days ago, after which  several friends 
& colleagues suggested I also email the list. Some of the material is a 
bit old (Talk about SNMP V2, etc) as it is based on work initiated in 
1996, but the main concepts on large scale SW design, reusability and 
information encapsulation in Erlang are still valid, especially if you 
are running projects on the same scale as Ericsson does. As an anonymous 
Erlanger  once said, 'it is all about common sense, the rest is just 
technology'.  The same applies to what I wrote...

 From c.l.f:

I thought my thesis might be of interest to some of you out there. It 
deals with how standardised management protocols such as Corba or SNMP 
influence the software architecture in large scale development projects 
using Erlang, and how this influence can be avoided and isolated.  I go 
through examples of several large scale projects written in Erlang 
(Including the AXD301). The thesis is a bit old, as I took my time in 
handing it in (As we were implementing what I describe), but regardless 
is still relevant in the industry.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask.
