For many years, the IT industry has sought to accelerate the software development process by assembling new applications from existing software assets. However, true component-based reuse of the form Douglas Mcllroy envisaged in the 1960s is still the exception rather than the rule, and most of the systematic software reuse practiced today uses heavyweight approaches such as product-line engineering or domain-specific frameworks. By component, we mean any cohesive and compact unit of software functionality with a well-defined interface - from simple programming language classes to more complex artifacts such as Web services and Enterprise JavaBeans.
