This paper focuses on applying a component-based technology to the integration of applications and services deployed in heterogeneous, distributed and open platforms. The proposed technology extends the Container/Component model, adding new services to the components to facilitate their integration in these platforms. The component can have an arbitrary structure and internal complexity, can be used in different applications, and can also be deployed in different kind of processors without either knowing or modifying their code. The added services provide the technology with support for real-time requirements, and for more dynamic deployment processes, which allows a component to connect itself automatically with others that were already part of the infrastructure, based only on data provided during the deployment process.
