Description

Integrating three important aspects of software reuse--technical, management, and organizational--this indispensable reference shows how these fundamental aspects are used in the development lifecycle of component-based software engineering and product line engineering. The book explores the basic foundations upon which reuse processes and approaches can be established and discusses state of the art and state of the practice of software reuse.
