This paper presents a Model-Driven framework to support component-based development. The framework addresses the following important issues: (1) how to reduce the cost of making component reusable, (2) how to efficiently ensure compatibility among components in a composition, (3) how to relate service composition to system composition. The framework supports three kinds of reusable building blocks: (1) collaborations for global cross-cutting behaviors including services and interfaces; (2) roles or partial components for component compositions; and (3) components for system compositions.
