One of the most critical processes in component based software development (CBSD) is the choice of suitable commercial off-theshelf
components (COTS) that meet the user requirements. An important step in the component selection process is the evaluation of
components using quality models. This paper presents the most relevant of current quality models proposed in the literature. A comparative
analysis among them was performed and some issues related to CBSD were identified. Additionally, the main benefits and limitations associated
with each quality model were highlighted and explored.
