Vicki de Mey, "Visual Composition of Software Applications", in Object-Oriented Software Composition, pp. 275-303, , , , 1995


Open applications can be viewed as compositions of reusable and configurable components. We introduce visual composition as a way of constructing applications from plug-compatible software components. After presenting related work, we describe an object-oriented framework for visual composition that supports open system development through the notion of domain-specific composition models. We illustrate the use of the framework through the application of a prototype implementation to a number of very different domains. In each case, a specialized visual composition tool was realized by developing a domain-specific composition model. We conclude with some remarks and observations concerning component engineering and application composition in a context where visual composition is an essential part of the development process.
