Software systems are getting more sophisticated. As a result, more people are getting involved in the development of the same software project, which demands effective tools to support distributed software development in team-working environments. Although previous study has shown that collaborative programming where multiple users can collaboratively do design, coding, debugging, testing, and documentation on a soft ware project can not only accelerate problem-solving processes, but also improve the quality of software products, there are few collaborative programming tools available to support distributed collaborative programming particularly in the Internet environment. In this paper, we present a web-based collaborative programming environmentRECIPE(REal-time Collaborative Interactive Programming Environment), which was developed to be a vehicle for driving and demonstrating our research in supporting real-time distributed collaborative programming over the Internet. A working scenario has been illustrated to demonstrate how to do collaborative programming over the Internet with the support of the RECIPE system.
