Open-source software is an enormous treasure of knowledge available to whole mankind which has unique knowledge creation and dissemination mechanisms. In order to promote its usage in China, an open source software repository called OpenCom was designed and implemented as a supporting tool of Shanghai Component Library. OpenCom provides a simple but flexible collaborative platform to describe, store, retrieve, collect and develop open source software. Moreover, OpenCom introduces an extension to Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) to effectively support collaborative creation of knowledge in open source community on the Internet.
