Using the Internet for searching and accessing software components "on Demand" will be a future market in the context of E-Business. By applying innovative approaches for modular and distributed software systems, we now can make this vision happen. After giving a short introduction into the topics, the paper presents a reference model for classifying various technical solutions - concentrating on computer graphics applications. This classification is used to describe the state of the art in online software distribution. It is followed by a research agenda - topics to be solved in order to have a complete framework for Software on Demand. The authors' concrete steps for implementing the frame-work are presented. The second part of the paper outlines the benefits for the different groups involved in this scenario: software vendors, service providers and end users. A case study of a small soft-ware company, starting to apply this technology will underline the practical focus of this paper.
