In this paper, we describe DESKS (Developmental & Experimental Support for Knowledge-Based Systems), an integrated software package designed to support the development of advanced knowledge-based systems, including expert systems and other AI applications. DESKS follows the Fifth Generation approach in adopting a logic programming paradigm (Prolog) as the mechanism for application development. It provides system designers with an interacting set of sophisticated tools and database facilities to assist in the development process. This paper discusses the aims and achievements of DESKS, and chronicles the design and construction of the package.
