In my current project, we have several components (some are hardware and software, other are pure software) and all of them require some configurations. Usually, the configuration is a file containing parameters, but sometimes, it can be more complex (set of files, binaries etc).
There can also be relationship between components, but more in a hierarchical way (e.g. parameters of a top component that may apply to sub-components).
As a naïve approach, I guess I can represent my components as objects with attributes.
So, as a first start, I would like to find a software that can:
- Create instances of objects with a GUI
- Order and display the objects in a tree
- Store the objects (and the attributes) in a database
Do you know if such a software is available? Ideally, the software is open source and running under Linux!
