In CBSD, the possible benefits of COTS software development such
as low cost, low risk, and high quality, cannot be satisfactorily
achieved due to inadequate and/or incomplete proposals for component
specificactions. In particular, non-functional aspects play an
important role for components description and selection, but are
usually not taken into account when documenting components and
searching for them. In the paper, non-functional features of commercial
components are analyzed, and a template for collecting this kind of
information in XML documents is proposed in order to allow effective
COTS components trading.
