Composition is the process, which assembles a program from components by matching the requests of host with the provisions of contributors. The way in which contributors are provided differs, depending on the used composition mechanism. This paper defines a classification of composition mechanisms and describes what provision characteristics are typical for them. This classification is preparatory work for research in testing of component-based software, where the typical defects for composition mechanisms will be investigated.
