The term “distributed software engineering” is ambiguous. It includes both the engineering of distributed software and the process of distributed development of software, such as cooperative work. This paper concentrates on the former, giving an indication of the special needs and rewards in distributed computing. In essence, we argue that the structure of these systems as interacting components is a blessing which forces software engineers towards compositional techniques which offer the best hope for constructing scalable and evolvable systems in an incremental manner. We offer some guidance and recommendations as to the approaches which seem most appropriate, particularly in languages for distributed programming, specification and analysis techniques for modelling and distributed paradigms for guiding design
