Abstract : This paper discusses the topic of software reuse and is aimed at the software engineer who may actually be designing reusable software. The paper concentrates on many of the technical problems encountered when constructing reusable software components today. This paper does not, however, focus on the general problem of reusable software design. Instead, it focuses on the Ada programming language, and the problems software engineers may encounter when designing components in this language. This paper is intended to be a companion to IDA Paper P-2494, Strategy and Mechanisms for Encouraging Reuse in the Acquisition of SDI Software. P-2494 discusses the managerial and legal issues involved with software reuse.
