    In a component-based system, connectors are used to compose components. Connectors should have a semantics that makes them simple to construct and use. At the same time, their semantics should be rich enough to endow them with desirable properties such as genericity, compositionality and reusability. For connector construction, compositionality would be particularly useful, since it would facilitate systematic construction. In this paper we describe a hierarchical approach to connector definition and construction that allows connectors to be defined and constructed from sub-connectors. These composite connectors are indeed generic, compositional and reusable. They behave like design patterns, and provide powerful composition connectors. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
