Abstract

Using open source components (OSC) as well as other components is expected to provide a lot of benefits such as cost-savings and high-quality source code and applications. Using OSCs within in-house software requires integration which may be far from straightforward due to architecture mismatches. In this paper, we introduce an openware integration technique for in-house software and OSCs and integration micro architecture as an implementation of the openware integration technique. The micro architecture is highly modifiable and reusable and even dynamically configurable, which is of particular benefit in integrating constantly evolving OSCs. The technique and micro architecture are developed based on the needs identified in a state-of-the-practice research.
