Comprehensive reuse and systematic evolution of reuse artifacts as proposed by the Quality Improvement Paradigm (QIP) require an integrated management of (potentially reusable) experience data as well as project-related data. This demonstration presents an approach exploiting object-relational database technology to implement a QIP-driven reuse repository. Our SFB-501- Reuse-Repository is designed to support all phases of a reuse process and the accompanying improvement cycle by providing adequate functionality. Its implementation is based on object-relational database technology along with an infrastructure well suited for these purposes.
