By using different interface adapters for different methods, it is possible to construct a maximally covering web of interface adapters which incurs minimum loss during interface adaptation. We introduce a polynomial-time algorithm that can achieve this. However, we also show that minimizing the number of adapters included in a maximally covering web of interface adapters is an NP-complete problem. Key words: software engineering, interface adaptation, interoperability 1
