Interface Negotiation and Efficient Reuse: A Relaxed Theory of the Component Object Model

Kevin Sullivan & Mark Marchukov
Reconciling requirements for (1) the efficient integration of independently developed and evolving components and (2) the evolution of systems built from such components requires novel architectural styles, standards and idioms. Traditional object-oriented approaches have proven inadequate. Two important new mechanisms supporting integration and evolution are dynamic interface negotiation and aggregation, an approach to efficient composition. Both feature prominently in the Component Object Model (COM), a de facto standard providing the architectural foundation for many important...
