Context Definition 1    (2V1C)

Component-Based Architecture (CBA) is a lifecycle approach to architecting software solutions from components. It produces applications that are very flexible because of their component "plug and play" nature. By modeling the business from a services perspective, we produce a target architecture consisting of highly reusable components. This approach is key to implementing applications (and modernizing legacy applications) that are able to support, rather than inhibit, business change. Reference/URL Context Definition 1    (2V1D)
