Software Reuse: Objects and Frameworks are not Enough

Griss, Martin L.



Abstract: Software reuse is a widely desired and often-touted benefit of employing object technology (OT), yet too many object-oriented (OO) reuse efforts fail because of too narrow a focus on technology. This column will explore the lessons of systematic software reuse from several perspectives, such as process, organization, management, methods, technology, architecture, tools, patterns, frameworks and practical experience. One lesson is that while OT is in fact neither necessary nor sufficient for effective systematic reuse, it is a most promising enabling technology. My goal is to illuminate how to more effectively use OT to support systematic OO reuse.
