A number of different software engineering paradigms like Component-Based Software Engineering (CBSE), Autonomic Computing, Service-Oriented Computing (SOC), fault-tolerant computing and many others are being researched currently. These paradigms denote a paradigm shift from the currently mainstream object-oriented paradigm and are altering the way the authors view, design, develop and exercise software. Though these paradigms indicate a major shift in the way they design and code software. However, the authors still rely on traditional reliability models for estimating the reliability of any of the above systems.
