Much of modern software development consists of assembling together existing software components and writing the glue code that integrates them into a unified application. The term COTS-Based System (CBS) is often used to describe such applications, for which the components assembled are understood to be Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components written by a multitude of independent third parties. The manner of assembly in CBS includes full-source components that are integrated at compile-time, pure-binary libraries incorporated at load time, and plugins that are loaded into the application at execution time by the user.
