Component-Based Software Engineering focuses on the reuse of existing software components. In practice, most components cannot be integrated directly into an application-to-be, because they are incompatible. Software Adaptation aims at generating, as automatically as possible, adaptors to compensate mismatch between component interfaces, and is therefore a promising solution for the development of a real market of components promoting software reuse. In this article, we present our approach for software adaptation which relies on an abstract notation based on synchronous vectors and transition systems for governing adaptation rules. Our proposal is supported by dedicated algorithms that generate automatically adaptor protocols. These algorithms have been implemented in a tool, called Adaptor, that can be used through a user-friendly graphical interface.
