Research Scenario of Software Reuse
The idea of software reuse was projected in late sixties. History of software development describes that area of software reusability was not so innovative. But it is believed that software reuse is still in the development phase and has not achieved its full potential. This paper describes how far the authors are with software reuse research. Software Reuse is defined as the process of building software applications and systems from previously existing software. It has been associated with software engineering since its early days as the NATO Software Engineering Conference in 1968 marked the birth of the idea of systematic software reuse.
