With the development of modern society, human beings are more and more aware of the importance of creativity. As a new area of research, creative computing will play a bigger role in life. There is no doubt that a large pool of knowledge is the foundation of creativity. Research shows that legacy systems contain not only a great deal of domain expertise but also many reusable components. From this point, a new component extraction approach is proposed to extract reusable components of the system and provide better foundation and inspiration for creativity. Experiments have shown that this approach can extract reusable components efficiently, which is helpful for creativity.
