Abstract

This paper makes two contributions. (1) it argues that precise visual modelling techniques are important for modelling large-scale software components, as they facilitate the core activities of component-based software development (CBSD): building, finding, adapting and assembling components. The paper argues for a carefully selected set of techniques based on UML, to provide accessible yet precise component models. (2) it proposes a high level reference model for CBSD to tease out exactly what is meant by the terms `component', `component adaptation' and `component assembly'. The paper illustrates this reference model by giving examples of components, and the transformations that can be applied to them, using precise visual models.
