Creating composite applications from reusable components is an important technique in software engineering and data management. Although a large body of research and development covers integration at the data and application levels, little work has been done to facilitate it at the presentation level. This article discusses the existing user interface frameworks and component technologies used in presentation integration, illustrates their strengths and weaknesses, and presents some opportunities for future work.
