Eric,<div>&nbsp;</div> Great article and great position on leveraging existing code. One minor point however. You are probably too young to remember, but code reuse dates back to the 1970's! It most likely first originated with Yourdon and structured programming in COBOL. <div>&nbsp;</div> The problem in the adoption and use of reusable code was two fold: 1) knowing that a reusable component existed -- especially over time and staff changes, and 2) NMC -- NOT MY CODE and fear of using "black box" code written by others. <div>&nbsp;</div> Rational addresses these issues with Rational Asset Manager, Rational Team Concert, and other products within the product portfolio designed to assist with documentation and control over the application development life cycle.
