Methodology for visual uniform composition

This methodology enables the end-user to edit component-based architectures of artefacts with different component models. From design time over compile-time and link-time to runtime, all component models can be plugged into the generic visual component editor, and edited uniformly.

Hence, not only the component models can be handled uniformly, they can also be edited uniformly. This result paves the way for the substitution of programming by composition. It should simplify construction of complex software artefacts and documents enormously in the future. It is the worldwide first technology for this purpose and gives Europe a leading edge in simplification of software and document engineering.
