Dimensions of Component-based Development

  • As the properties of components have gradually become clearer, attention has started to turn to the architectural issues which govern their interaction and composition. In this paper we identify some of the major architectural questions affecting component-based software develop-ment and describe the predominant architectural dimensions. Of these, the most interesting is the "architecture hierarchy" which we believe is needed to address the "interface vicissitude" problem that arises whenever interaction refinement is explicitly documented within a component-based system. We present a solution to this problem based on the concept of stratified architectures and object metamorphosis Finally, we describe how these concepts may assist in increasing the tailorability of component-based frameworks.
