© 2000 IEEE. Developing software components with user interfaces that can be adapted to diverse reuse situations is challenging. Examples of such adaptations include extending, composing and reconfiguring multiple-component user interfaces, and adapting component user interfaces to particular user preferences, roles and subtasks. We describe our recent work in facilitating such adaptation via the concept of "user interface aspects", which facilitate effective component user interface design and realisation using an extended component-based software architecture.
