Journal article


Software Engineering Notes




This paper gives a short overview of the 4th ICSE Workshop on Component-based Software Engineering. The workshop brought together researchers and practitioners from three communities: component technology, software architecture, and software certification. The goal of the workshop was to find a common understanding and to discuss the topics related to the component composition. The workshop was divided in eight sessions held in sequence, starting with invited talks and ended with a final discussion. A model problem, to be used for further research and work in future workshops, was discussed and later selected. The paper gives a comprehensive summary of the sessions and plans for future work
