The size, complexity, and integration level of software systems is increasing c- stantly. Companies in all domains identify that software de?nes the competitive edge of their products. These developments require us to constantly search for new approaches to increase the productivity and quality of our software - velopment and to decrease the cost of software maintenance. Generative and component-based technologies hold considerablepromise with respect to achi- ing these goals. GCSE 2001 constituted another important step forward and provided a platform for academic and industrial researchers to exchange ideas. These proceedings represent the third conference on generative and com- nent-based software engineering. The conference originated as a special track on generative programming from the Smalltalk and Java in Industry and - ucation Conference (STJA), organized by the working group “Generative and Component-Based Software Engineering” of the “Gesellschaft fur ̈ Informatik” FG 2.1.9 “Object-Oriented Software Engineering.” However, the conference has evolved substantially since then, with its own, independent stature, invited speakers, and, most importantly, a stable and growing community. This year’s conference attracted 43 submissions from all over the world, - dicating the broad, international interest in the research ?eld. Based on careful review by the program committee, 14 papers were selected for presentation. I would like to thank the members of the program committee, all renowned - perts, for their dedication in preparing thorough reviews of the submissions.

In the past two years, the Smalltalk and Java in Industry and Education C- ference (STJA) featured a special track on generative programming, which was organized by the working group \Generative and Component-Based Software Engineering" of the \Gesellschaft fur ̈ Informatik" FG 2.1.9 \Object-Oriented Software Engineering." This track covered a wide range of related topics from domain analysis, software system family engineering, and software product - nes, to extendible compilers and active libraries. The talks and keynotes directed towards this new software engineering paradigm received much attention and - terest from the STJA audience. Hence the STJA organizers suggested enlarging this track, making it more visible and open to wider, international participation. This is how the GCSE symposium was born. The rst GCSE symposium attracted 39 submissions from all over the world. This impressive number demonstrates the international interest in generative programming and related elds. After a careful review by the program comm- tee, fteen papers were selected for presentation. We are very grateful to the members of the program committee, all of them renowned experts, for their dedication in preparing thorough reviews of the submissions. Special thanks go to Elke Pulvermuller ̈ and Andreas Speck, who proposed and organized a special conference event, the Young Researches Workshop (YRW). This workshop provided a unique opportunity for young scientists and Ph.D.

Component-based software development regards software construction in terms of conventional engineering disciplines where the assembly of systems from readily-available prefabricated parts is the norm. Because both component-based systems themselves and the stakeholders in component-based development projects are different from traditional software systems, component-based testing also needs to deviate from traditional software testing approaches. Gross first describes the specific challenges related to component-based testing like the lack of internal knowledge of a component or the usage of a component in diverse contexts. He argues that only built-in contract testing, a test organization for component-based applications founded on building test artifacts directly into components, can prevent catastrophic failures like the one that caused the now famous ARIANE 5 crash in 1996. Since building testing into components has implications for component development, built-in contract testing is integrated with and made to complement a model-driven development method. Here UML models are used to derive the testing architecture for an application, the testing interfaces and the component testers. The method also provides a process and guidelines for modeling and developing these artifacts. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of the intricacies of testing component-based software systems. With its strong modeling background, it appeals to researchers and graduate students specializing in component-based software engineering. Professionals architecting and developing component-based systems will profit from the UML-based methodology and the implementation hints based on the XUnit and JUnit frameworks.

The 2010 Symposium on Component-Based Software Engineering (CBSE 2010) was the 13th in a series of successful events that have grown into the main forum for industrial and academic experts to discuss component technology. CBSE is concerned with the development of software-intensive systems from - dependently developed software-building blocks (components), the development of components, and system maintenance and improvement by means of com- nent replacement and customization. The aim of the conference is to promote a science and technology foundation for achieving predictable quality in software systems through the use of software component technology and its associated software engineering practices. In line with a broad interest, CBSE 2010 received 48 submissions. From these submissions, 14 were accepted after a careful peer-review process followed by an online program committee discussion. This resulted in an acceptance rate of 29%. The selected technical papers are published in this volume. For the fourth time, CBSE 2010 was held as part of the conference series: Fed- ated Events on Component-Based Software Engineering and Software Archit- ture (COMPARCH). The federated events were: the 13th International S- posium on Component-Based Software Engineering (CBSE 2010), the 6th - ternational Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures (QoSA 2010), andthe1stInternationalSymposium onArchitecting CriticalSystems(ISARCS 2010). Together with COMPARCH’s Industrial Experience Report Track and the co-located Workshop on Component-Oriented Programming (WCOP 2010), COMPARCH provided a broad spectrum of events related to components and architectures.

Component-based software development (CBD) is an emerging discipline that promises to take software engineering into a new era. Building on the achievements of object-oriented software construction, CBD aims to deliver software engineering from a cottage industry into an industrial age for Information Technology, wherein software can be assembled from components, in the manner that hardware systems are currently constructed from kits of parts. This volume provides a survey of the current state of CBD, as reflected by activities that have been taking place recently under the banner of CBD, with a view to giving pointers to future trends. The contributions report case studies - self-contained, fixed-term investigations with a finite set of clearly defined objectives and measurable outcomes - on a sample of the myriad aspects of CBD. The book includes chapters dealing with COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) components; methodologies for CBD; compositionality, i.e. how to calculate or predict properties of a composite from those of its constituents; component software testing; and grid computing.

A cutting-edge, UML-based approach to software development and maintenance that integrates component-based and product-line engineering methods. - ripe market: development of component-based technologies is a major growth area - CBD viewed as a faster, more flexible way of building systems that can easily be adapted to meet rapidly-changing business needs and integrate legacy and new applications (e.g. Forrester report in June 1998 predicted that by 2001 "half of packaged apps vendors will deliver component-based apps"; e.g. Butler Group Management Briefing (2000): "Butler Group is now advising that all new-build and significant modification activity should be based on component architectures...Butler Group belives that Component-Based Development is one of the most important events in the evolution of information technology" e.g. Gartner Group estimates that "by 2003, 70% of new applications will be deployed as a combination of pre-assembled and newly created components integrated to form complex business-systems. The book defines, describes and shows how to use a method for component-based product-line engineering, supported by UML. This method aims to dramatically increase the level of reuse in software development by integrating the strengths of both of these approaches. UML is used to describe components during the analysis, design & implementation stages and capture their characteristics and relationships.This method includes two new kinds of extensions to the UML: new stereotypes to capture KobrA-specific concepts and new metamodel elements to capture variabilities. The method makes components the focus of the entire software development process, not just the implementation and deployment phases. The method has grown out of work by two companies in industry (Softlab & Psipenta) and two research organizations (GMD FIRST & Fraunhofer IESE) called the KobrA project. It is influenced by a number of successful existing methods e.g. Fusion method, Cleanroom method, Catalysis & Rational Unified Process, integrated with new ideas in an innovative way. Benefits for the reader: - gain a clear understanding of the product-line and component-based approaches to software development - learn how to use UML to describe components in analysis, design and implementation of components - learn how to develop and apply component-based frameworks in product-lines - learn how to build new systems from pre-existing components and ensure that components are of a high quality The book also includes: - case studies: library system example running throughout the chapters; ERP/business software system as appendix or separate chapter - bibliography - glossary - appendices covering: UML profiles, concise process description in the form of UML activity diagrams, refinement/translation patterns AUDIENCE Software engineers, architects & project managers. Software engineers working in the area of distributed/enterprise systems who want a method for applying a component-based or product-line engineering approach in practice.
