Mismatches between pre-qualified existing components and the particular reuse context in applications have been a major factor hindering component reusability. Component adaptation is a key solution to the elimination of these mismatches. However, deep adaptation is often either impossible or incurring heavy overheads in the components. This paper proposes an approach, namely Scenario-based dynamic component Adaptation and GenerAtion (SAGA), to achieve deep adaptation with little code overhead through XMLbased component specification, XML-based adaptation scenarios and corresponding component generation.
