This paper introduces five hypotheses for designing successful groupware. The hypotheses can be met by using a component model and add groupware-specific compo-nents to form a groupware platform on top of that model. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of JavaBeans as underlying model. A scenario from the remote teaching domain highlights the usefulness of a component-based approach. From the hypotheses and the scenarios we draw the conclusion, what still needs to be investigated and developed to create a component-based platform for highly customizable, tailorable and extendable groupware.
