Abstract. The use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components is
becoming a strategic need because they offer the possibility to build systems at
reduced costs and within shorter development time. Having efficient and
reliable COTS components selection methods is a key issue not only for
exploiting the potential benefits of this technology, but also for facing the
problems and risks involved. Searching COTS components requires to
overcome several obstacles: the growing size and evolvability of the COTS
marketplace, the dependencies from the components to be selected with others,
and the type of descriptions currently available for those components. In this
paper, we present a goal-oriented strategy for an effective localization, analysis
and structuring of COTS components information. Our proposal is the GOThIC
method, which provides methodological support to the construction of
