International audience; The Component Based System (CBS) paradigm is now largely used to design software systems. In addition, performance and behavioural analysis remains a required step for the design and the construction of efficient systems. This is especially the case of CBS, which involve interconnected components running concurrent processes. % This paper proposes a compositional method for modeling and structured performance analysis of CBS. Modeling is based on Stochastic Well-formed Nets (SWN), a high level model of Stochastic Petri nets, widely used for dependability analysis of concurrent systems. Starting from the definition of the system given in a suitable Architecture Description Language, and from the definition of the elementary components, we build an SWN of the global system together with a set of SWNs modeling the components of the CBS and their connections. From these models, we derive performances of the system thanks to a structured analysis induced by the structure of the CBS. We describe the application of our method through an example designed in the framework of the CORBA Component Model.
