Component framework technology has become the cornerstone of building a family of systems and applications. A component framework defines a generic architecture into which specialized components can be plugged. As such, the component framework leverages the glue that connects the different inserted components together. We have examined a middle ground between aspect-oriented programming and computational reflection that improves the dynamics of this gluing process such that interaction between components can be refined at run-time. In this paper, we show how we have used this middle ground to dynamically integrate into the architecture of middleware systems new services that support non-functional aspects such as security, transactions, real-time.
