Both object-orientation and the Internet make the widespread reuse of software a possibility. Unfortunately, the potential benefits from these facilities have not been forthcoming. One reason for this is the lack of a coherent model for software development and reuse. This paper proposes such a model which is based upon modelling software components using state transition machines. Reuse is made possible by defining matching relations between component descriptions in terms of machine simulations. Both the development process and matching relations are given a formal semantics.
