Integrating three important aspects of software reuse--technical, management, and organizational--this indispensable reference shows how these fundamental aspects are used in the development lifecycle of component-based software engineering and product line engineering. The book explores the basic foundations upon which reuse processes and approaches can be established and discusses state of the art and state of the practice of software reuse.

Software engineering books are usually the most boring books you can find: you read them only if you have to. The reason is not because the subject is boring (it really is not), but because most of the software engineering researchers lack either knowledge, first hand experience, culture, intelligence, or combinations thereof. This one is an exception. It if the first time I read a book on software engineering with the impression that I learn important things, that the authors know what they are talking about, and do no try to sell propaganda, but to understand the real issues behind reuse. Taking reuse as a focal point, the book addresses and highlights most of the software engineering issues at stake in the last 20 years, from frameworks, patterns, oo programming up to metaclass programming and meta modeling. This makes it incidentally an ideal reference book for teaching software engineering in the large. Not only you get plenty of technical details and well crafted...
"Reuse Based Software Engineering" is the best software reuse book that I have found. The coverage is exhaustive. The book is over 600 pages with 600 words per page - almost half a million words to reuse. The logical organization is detailed and facilitates domain modeling - the hierarchy goes to 3 levels in most places and has at the top level these sections: * Introduction * Organizational Aspects * Domain Engineering: Building for Reuse * Object-Oriented Domain Engineering * Application Engineering * Managerial Aspects of Software Reuse * Software Reuse Technologies No other book has such a comprehensive coverage of both the technical and managerial issues. More work has been done in the past on the technical issues, and this book faithfully represents that emphasis. The section on Object-Oriented Domain Engineering is 230 pages long and includes many examples of code that would facilitate object-oriented...
