Abstract:- Component-based software development approach is based on the idea to develop software systems by selecting appropriate off-the-shelf components and then to assemble them with a well-defined software architecture. In order to integrate components available from previous projects or from external suppliers, it is necessary to check whether the components have functional and non-functional properties sufficient for the new system. This paper studies the various characteristics (other than functional) that a component should possess to be fit for reuse. In this paper, we draw current component-based software technologies comparison, describe their advantages and disadvantages, and discuss the features they inherit.
