With increasing number of components now available on the market, research and industry emphasis has shifted from the development of component models to the development of languages and other techniques to enable the composition of pre-fabricated components. The authors believe that frameworks for composition of components must be flexible, extensible, re-usable and offer some guarantees on the correctness of the composition. The authors present in this position statement a unique framework that is based on the simple hypothesis that complex component compositions can always be broken down into a sequence of simple composition operators.
