Type based adaptation (An approach for the automated component adaptation)

Type based adaptation an adaptation technique that, unlike other techniques, supports the automated adaptation of component interfaces by relying on the component's type information and without requiring knowledge about the component's implementation.

This adaptation technique eases the software composition process. Software components are typically developed independently of each other. A disadvantage of software components, however, is that due to their independent development, component interfaces do not necessarily match and thus need to be adapted. This problem is solved by type-based adaptation.
