The software industry is still creating much of its product in a “monolithic” fashion. The products may be more modular and configurable than they used to be, but most projects cannot be said to be truly component based. Even some projects being built with component-enabled technologies are not taking full advantage of the component model. It is quite possible to misuse component capabilities and as a result, to forfeit many of their benefits. Many organizations are becoming aware of the advantages and are getting their developers trained in the new technologies and the proper way to use them. It takes time for an organization to adopt such a significant change in their current practices. Some of the trade magazines would have us believe that the industry is years ahead of where it truly is – those of us in the trenches know that the reaction time is a little longer in the real world. The change to component-based development has begun, however.
