Component Software Technology
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
Component software technology breaks large and complex applications into smaller software modules called components or objects (in the Java environment, objects are called applets). By breaking applications into components, complex software is simplified. Each component is like a building block that performs a specific task and has an interface that lets developers combine it with other components to build applications. See "Distributed Object Computing" for more information.
