Presented by Jacky Estublier and Jean-Marie Favre

April 7, 2002, afternoon

Abstract :

This tutorial analyses the characteristics, trends and motivations of components models and component based architectures. The major industrial component models are presented at a level of abstraction high enough to be compared, and to compare component models with the Architecture Description Language (ADL) propositions. We will point out similarities and convergence with programming languages. The various trends are identified and discussed, and we conclude by a forecast of future development.
