Components, Customizability, Reusability, Complexity
Component-Based Systems (CBS) have now become more generalized approach for application development. The main advantages of CBS are reduced development time, cost and efforts along with several others. These advantages are mainly contributed by the reuse of already built-in software components. In order to realize the reuse of components effectively in CBS, it is required to measure the reusability of components. However, due to the blackbox nature of components where the source codes of these components are not available, it is difficult to use conventional metrics in Component-Based Development, as these metrics require analysis of source codes. The paper discusses the reusability concepts for Component based Systems and explores several existing metrics for both white-box and black box components to measure reusability directly or indirectly.
