In component-based programming, the programmer assembles applications from prefabricated components. The assembly process has two main steps: adapting a component by tweaking its configuration parameters, and connecting components by gluing output interfaces to input interfaces. While convenient, this approach may give rise to code bloat and inefficiency because prefabricated code is overly general, by necessity. The present work addresses ways to remove unnecessary code during the deployment… CONTINUE READING
