Abstract

“Reuse [software] engineering is a process where a technology asset is designed and developed following architectural principles, and with the intent of being reused in the future” [Bean, 1999]. “If programming has a Holy Grail, wide-spread code reuse is it with a bullet. While IT has made and continues to make laudable progress in our reuse, we never seem to make great strides in this area” [Grinzo, 1998]. The quest for that Holy Grail has taken many developers over many years down unproductive paths” [Bowen, 1997] This paper reports on software reuse research (both literature research and design/coding research) and presents an approach for effective software reuse in the development of business systems. This approach is based on Object Oriented technology and provides for both the specification and enforcement of software reuse and corporate standards.
