Composition of Software Components is a key activity in a component-based software development lifecycle. In this paper we highlight the importance of having development environments for component composition. Currently, software components are developed under different standards, therefore introducing the challenge of heterogeneity at the time of composition. We propose research to define composition within an environment of heterogeneous software artifacts. We then propose a strategy to handle the research. As a first step towards solving the research problem, this paper concentrates on defining a software component and outlines our future work.
