The composition of binary software components divides the development process into two parts.
First, component developers write new component libraries and second,
application programmers use them to compose their applications.
This project introduces the idea of component plans and their description in
Component Plan Language (CoPL) and the idea of a component technology independent
composition language as an XML application, called Component Markup Language (CoML).
The languages combined with tools for component composition try to bridge the knowledge
gap between component developers and component assemblers and to automate the composition
itself by remaining platform independent and as flexible as possible.
