Component-based Software Development is being recognized as the direction in which the software industry is headed. With the proliferation of Commercial Off The Shelf COTS Components, this trend will continue to emerge as a preferred technique for developing distributed software systems encompassing heterogeneous components. In order for this approach to result in software systems with a predictable quality, the COTS components utilized should in turn offer a guaranteed level of quality. This calls for an objective paradigm for quantifying the quality of service of COTS components. A Quality of Service QoS catalog, proposed here, for software components is a first step in quantifying the quality attributes. This catalog is a critical component of the UniFrame project, which targets at unifying the existing and emerging distributed component models under a common meta-model for the purpose of enabling discovery, interoperability, and collaboration of components via generative programming techniques.
