Re-use of software components is standard practice in software design and development in which humans play an important role. In many dynamic environments, however, (semi-)automated configuration of systems, is warranted. This paper examines three such domains: Agent Factories, Web service configuration and general software composition. The differences and similarities between these approaches, and the progress that is being made are discussed.
