2010 International Journal of Computer Applications  
In this paper, approaches to assess the reliability of the COTS software for a given or specified operation profile have been analyzed using the proposed methods for White box and Black box approaches. In the black box approach the fragile point analysis is used to assess the reliability of the software, for a given operational profile, using the functional or design specification of the software.
