Abstract

In this chapter, we will introduce the concept of software components. This term describes a special way to structure software into functional, reusable units. To show the reasons why such an approach is useful, we will first discuss the problem of the reuse of code and why it is important to anyone who develops software. We will then discuss possible solutions to this problem. The outcome of this discussion will be a list of requirements, which we will use as criteria for the definition of software components. After we have defined these requested features, we will show how they can be realized.
