Feature interactions have been the subject of extensive research over recent years within the telecommunications industry. We consider one approach developed within this domain, a feature manager approach, which we claim, has wider-applicability. We analyse this approach in a component-based context, showing how the technique can be used to manage interactions occurring between components. Through a component-based example, we introduce the various steps of the technique. In addressing performance issues, clearly significant for a run-time technique, we conclude that the results are promising and, with the benefit of an on-the-fly method, are scalable.
