A major limitation of available component-based platforms is that they do not provide suitable means for describing and reasoning on the concurrent behaviour of interacting component-based system. Indeed while these platforms provide convenient ways to describe the typed signatures of components, e.g. like CORBA's IDL, they offer a quite low-level support to describe the concurrent behaviour of component. The ability to describe and verify the concurrent behaviour of interacting components is key aspect in the development of large component-based software system. This study propose a component interface specification using process algebra and configuration's role which allows one to prove correctness of software architecture generated at design level as well as to define compatibility relations by our evolution rule and φ-graph. Also, we shown on an appropriateness of a specification techniques and definitions proposed in this paper by case-study.
