Abstract in different language: Component-based software engineering is a mature field of study that enables better reusability of already written code by introducing coarsergrained components that are similar to similar concepts known from other industries. Components enable to create even more complex software systems than before but there is no smart way how to visualize the structure of these systems. It is well known that interactivity is a great help in visualization: it can enhance human performance and speed up the process of understanding the visualized information. However this knowledge lays largely unused by mainstream software engineering research as there is no approach able to visualize structure of these complex software systems, especially one that could offer benefits of interactive visualization. This failure is discussed in this repor together with a proposed solution. As a basis of the discussion we provide an overview of basic terms of component-based engineering and introduce details concerned with interactive visualization to emphasize its importance. The lack of suficient approach is documented by a survey we made and present in this report together with a discussion about state of the art in this area. The proposed solution is a new approach that uses the advantages of interactive techniques for the visualization of component-based applications structure.
