Dr. Premysl BRADA University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, Czech Republic The term "software component" is among the most frequent and misunderstood ones in software engineering. The aim of this talk is to clarify the issue, starting from the originating concepts for the current term definition. The realization of the concept in several frameworks will be reviewed, including the SOFA research framework, Sun's EJB, OMG's CORBA Component Model and Microsoft's COM/COM+ platforms.
