The aim of this special issue is to report the state of research and practice on the theme of software components, architectures and reuse. This special issue is comprised of invited papers, and peer-reviewed papers presented at the Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS 2007) (, held in Campinas, S˜ao Paulo, Brazil, 29-31 August, 2007. The call for this special issue received 18 submissions: 14 submissions related to extended and revised versions of papers accepted for SBCARS 2007, and 4 invited submissions from well-known researchers in the area. Each of the 18 submissions was reviewed by at least 3 reviewers, and based on the reviewers’ recommendations 8 papers were accepted. These papers stand for the high quality of the research being carried out among researchers from Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States. Contents of this Issue The first paper entitled “Model Interpreter Frameworks: A Foundation for the Analysis of Domain-Specific Software Architectures” (G. Edwards, C. Seo, N. Medvidovic) proposes a reusable model interpreter for reducing the complexity of transforming architectural models into analytical models. In the context of component-based software development, the proposed approach enables the automated analysis of the quality attributes of software systems, such as, performance, reliability, and resource consumption. For illustrating the approach, the authors describe the implementation of the eXtensible Toolchain for Evaluation of Architectural Models (XTEAM), an environment that integrates the activities of modeling, analysis, and synthesis. The second paper “Embedded Software Revitalization Through Component Mining” (M. Ramos, R. Penteado) presents an approach for software maintenance that relies on the mining of components for performing the revitalization
