Abstract: The Present time system software’s are complex and cost estimation is required in such type of complex software’s .The overall cost of such software’s can be reduced by reusing the existing components. The component based software engineering is the technique through which we can easily reuse the existing components and able to reduce the overall software cost. We can estimate the overall cost of the system software before development, if the overall cost will be reduced by reusing the existing components then only we can reuse these components otherwise not. The Compatibility is the main problem in the component based software’s. Before reusing the component based software module, we have to check its compatibility with the software in which we are using that module. In our work; we have designed an automation tool to check the compatibility. The overall system cost can also be increased when we perform integration testing. Our proposed new technique will reduce overall software cost and provide better integration testing.
