This paper presents a precise specification matching, both structural and functional matching, to explore component retrieval and adaptation. Structural matching is used to check adaptability, while functional matching is used to ensure the proper functionality. We introduce attributed labeled transition systems (ALTS) to formally specify component structures and functionalities. Automated component adaptation is facilitated by a matching tool implemented in a tabled logic programming environment, which provides distinct advantages for rapid prototyping and implementation. Examples are given to illustrate how the concrete adapter is derived automatically from specification matching.
