Software connectors [1] are first-class entities used in component systems to model and implement communication among components. At design time, they are responsible for modeling the features and behavior of individual inter-component links. During application execution, the design-time connectors are represented by runtime entities that implement the communication according to the design-time specification. In distributed environments, connectors are also responsible for addressing the distribution by spanning multiple address spaces, for which they typically utilize existing middleware. An important feature of connectors is that they can be automatically generated based on a high-level specification and capabilities of target deployment nodes.

The aim of the thesis is to attempt to speed up the code generation phase of the existing connector generator [2] using advanced techniques such as bytecode manipulation [3]. The thesis shall also address possible reduction of system resources requirements of the generator.
