This chapter gives a brief introduction to automated software composition. Section 2.1 provides an overview of the general task of automated software composition. Then, Sect. 2.2 gives an overview over the features of composition problems. Third, Sect. 2.3 proposes the first level of a classification scheme, which is the basis for the technical discussions in the next chapters; i.e., it presents the two main classes of composition problems.
