Abstract

More and more systems are developed from components instead of from scratch. Reusing components has many advantages: The development time dramatically decreases, the usability of the products increases, the production costs usually decrease, and so on. However, there is a big difference between a "classic" and component-based development, and there are many pitfalls which may lead to an unsuccessful result. A lot of difficult issues and aspects of Component Based Software Engineering (CBSE) have to be investigated to develop good component-based products. Still there is no established development process which will guarantee a proper treatment of components. This paper elaborates on some of those different aspects of CBSE and gives advise to developers working with component technologies. In particular the it is discusses the component identification problem, relation between the object-oriented and the component development, and the different phases in the component-based development process. Certain proposals for improvements of the process are given.
