This collection of top-notch articles by well-known experts brings together, for the first time, key elements of this area that are fast becoming the focus of much current research and practice in computing. About half the articles deal with theoretical frameworks, models, and systems of notation; the rest comprise case studies by architects of prototype systems who present findings on architectures verification. The emphasis is on advances in the technological infrastructure of component-based systems; how to design and specify reusable components; and how to reason about, verify, and validate systems from components. An introduction by Clemens Szyperski gives a snapshot of current research in the field.

Review of the hardback: ' ... it is kind of material that is at the cutting edge of computer science and it is on these concepts that future programmes will be basing their work.' Application Development Advisor
Review of the hardback: 'The book is sure to be enthusiastically accepted by anyone professionally involved with component-based systems. The editors have chosen an important task and have done it superbly. The result is an important work, a pleasure and an education to read and consult.' Current Engineering Practice
Review of the hardback: 'The book is well written and, more important, matches one of the current emphases of the software and systems industry. As already indicated, it is quite detailed and thorough, but it could certainly serve well as a text for a graduate-level computer science course. Practitioners and researchers ... will also want to have this book in their libraries.' Charles Schroeder, Computing Reviews
