Abstract

Using open source components (OSC) 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 a product family approach for integration of in-house software and OSCs. In addition an integration micro architecture as an implementation of the product family approach is presented. The micro architecture enables adding new responsibilities, controlling activities and translation independents of the integrated component, which is of particular benefit in integrating constantly evolving OSCs.
