Software Reuse is a state of the art book concerning all aspects of software reuse. It does away with the hype and shows the reality. Different techniques are presented which enable software reuse and the author demonstrates why object-oriented methods are better for reuse than other approaches. The book details the different factors to take into account when managing reusable components: characterisation, identification, building, verification, storage, search, adaptation, maintenance and evolution. Comparisons and description of various types of companies that could benefit from applying reuse techniques are included outlining, amongst other things, increased profitability and likely problems that might arise from the purchase and selling of reuse tools and components. Based on a real experience of software reuse in a company with a bibliography of more than 200 references provided, this book is a 'must have' for all those working in the software reuse field.
