Context Definition 3    (2V0R)

(General) any software (sub)system that can be factored out and has a potentially standardizable or reusable exposed interface. Components in a SW architecture can be identified at different levels of abstraction, and the components identified at these different levels may not be in one-to-one correspondence. For example, viewing an architecture at one level of abstraction, object services may be identified as components. Viewing the same architecture at a more detailed level, a given service may be implemented by several distinct software modules, which may be individually identified as components.    (2V0S)
