ABSTRACT

CARDS Component Provider's and Tool Developer's Handbook
     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:
   o  government   -  domain and Systems Program Office (SPO) engineers,
   o  contractors  -  component creators and tool developers.
