Works on testability of components or component-based software have proposed several techniques for increasing testability of
component-based software systems. This work aims at reviewing these techniques for understanding their similarities and differences. It
classifies the techniques in accordance with the nature of problems in component-based software testability. This helps in evaluating proposed
techniques as per their contribution in solving the concerned problems. Further, this makes their relative efficiency explicit, and, lets us have an
overview of major issues being taken up by previous works on component-based software testability. This has been used to arrive at current
research gaps and questions in component-based software testability.



Keywords: Component-based software, COTS component, Testing, Testability.
