Abstract
Component-oriented software development is becoming more and more important
for the production of large-scale software applications. Today's systems are con-
structed by combining different software components rather than built from scratch.
Provided component interfaces or informal descriptions are not enough for design-
ing reliable software systems. Therefore we need precise description means for
formulating component behavior without uncovering implementation details of the
component. In this paper, we will present a model for the design of component-
based software systems, where the design aspects of connectors between components
play a central role. We will therefore introduce the concept of connector refinement
allowing to abstract from technical connector implementations on the design level
of a system.
