|About the Book|
Commercial software components (CSCSs) are for-sale products. A component is a reusable program building block that can be combined with other components in the same or other computers in a distributed network to form an application. Components are gaining appeal because they allow the software practitioner to buy rather than build from scratch. This volume is intended to help software architects, engineers, and project managers build large systems from commerical software components. A series of case studies illustrates the books techniques in practice.
