Available component-oriented platforms address software interoperability only at the signature level, while they do not provide suitable mechanisms for adapting components with mismatching interaction behaviour. This paper presents a methodology for automatically developing adaptors capable of solving behaviour mismatches between heterogeneous components. These adaptors are generated from abstract specifications of the intended connection between the components, by taking into account both signature interfaces and component behaviours.
