Reuse of Off-the-Shelf Components in C2-Style Architectures
-- Reuse of large-grain software components offers the potential for significant savings in application development cost and time. Successful component reuse and substitutability depends both on qualities of the components reused as well as the software context in which the reuse is attempted. Disciplined approaches to the structure and design of software applications offers the potential of providing a hospitable setting for such reuse. We present the results of a series of exercises designed to determine how well “offthe-shelf” components could be reused in applications designed in accordance with the C2 software architectural style. The exercises involved the reuse of two user-interface constraint solvers, two graphics toolkits, a World Wide Web browser, and a persistent object manager. A subset of these components was used to construct numerous variations of a single application (thus an application family). The exercises also included construction of a simple development envi...
