Abstract : One of the motivations for stipulating software architectures explicitly is the use of high intensity structural design information for improved control and prediction of software system quality attributes. Gradually software applications are mounting more complex and with more stress on reuse. The focus of this paper is to provide an outline for the state of the art of Component Based Systems reliability estimation and to present an approach for determining the reliability of component-based software architectures. The proposed model in this paper provides software system dependability in term of the reliability of different execution paths and the usage ratio of each component. The reliability of a component most powerfully depends on its environment. Therefore, we promote a reliability model parameterized by mandatory component reliability in a deployment perspective.
