Abstract: The development of, and research on, component based systems has become increasingly popular in the recent years, both in industry and academia. The reasons for the ongoing success are many-sided. One of the reasons which contributed to the rising popularity of component based software development is certainly the steadily rising number of components accessible over the web. In [TvH00] Tras and van Hillegersberg give an insight into the conditions for the growth predictions of the Gartner Group, the Giga Information group and Ovum. The latter, for instance, estimated the size of the software component market to be $64 billion in 2002. However, the available components often differ in several ways: for example, the places where the components are provided. These reach from companies which sell their software components, so-called Commercial off the Shelf (COTS), ins special marketplaces like ComponentSource.com or Flashline.com, to software components provided by the open source community. The latter are mainly provided for free and, depending on the underlying license, can mostly be used without any restrictions. Components of the open source community are usually made available in special repositories such as sourceforge.net, or can be found by means of specialized search engines like merobase.com.
