Component-based software development is gaining recognition as the key
technology for the construction of high-quality, evolvable, large
software systems in timely and affordable manners. Component search and
service matching have become two of the key issues involved in this
process. However, current proposals addressing these issues are based
on the simplistic assumptions that components present only one
interface with the services they offer. This work presents an extension
of those approaches in which components may offer and require several
interfaces, extending the traditional component ``substitutability"
operator. In addition, an algorithm for selecting COTS components with
multiple interfaces from a repository in order to implement a given
software architecture is presented.
