A Relational Model for Component Interconnection

Abstract: The basic motivation of component based development is to replace conventional programming by the composition of reusable off-the-shelf units, externally coordinated through a network of connecting devices, to achieve a common goal. This paper introduces a new relational model for software connectors and discusses some preliminary work on its implementation in HASKELL. The proposed model adopts a coordination point of view in order to deal with components' temporal and spatial decoupling and, therefore, to provide support for looser levels of inter-component dependency and effective external control.

Keywords: coalgebra, coordination models, relations
