Component-based software engineering is an emerging paradigm for software development. Benefits of component-based development include significant reduction in the development cost, time and improvement in the dependability requirements. Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components are used without any code modification and inspection. When such components are integrated to build safety-critical systems, faults within individual COTS components or faults due to their collaboration may cause catastrophic failures. Therefore, for systems with high dependability requirements, it is essential to incorporate ways for tolerating the software faults at architectural level to deal with the faults that are not catered within the components. The existing component based fault tolerant architectures provide fault tolerance through either exception handling or design diversity.
