This chapter is a literature survey of architecting component software. It focuses on the architectural problems, challenges and proposals faced when utilizing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components in COTS-intcnsive systems, as well as in real-time and embedded systems. It also addresses the more mature architectural area of component-based systems and product lines where the specific characteristics of COTS components have been ignored.
