Retrieval is a major area in software repository because reuse is only effective if it is easier to locate than to write from scratch. In this paper, the authors are describing the classical methods for retrieving the reusable components and also proposed a retrieval mechanism which serves the best. The advantages of signature and behavioural algorithms have been unified in order to retrieve the best components. The software engineering has been widely used area nowadays, since it accepts even the other technical areas into it which strengthens this stream.
