Abstract : This Component Provider's and Tool Developer's Handbook was developed under the Central Archive for Reusable Defense Software (CARDS) Program to help facilitate software reuse adoption. Government developers and software industry vendors supporting government acquisitions are provided with guidance for developing domain-specific, reusable components and tools supporting reuse. The goal of this handbook is to stimulate the development and commercialization of large-scale components and tools for vertical domains. Focus is placed on architecture-centric, library-assisted software reuse. It is assumed the reader is familiar with the design and development of software. The audience for this handbook consists of domain and System Program Office (SPO) engineers, contractors: component creators and tool developers.
