Abstract. The integration of COTS components into a system under develop-
ment entails architectural mismatches. These have been tackled, so far, at the
component level, through component adaptation techniques, but they also must
be tackled at an architectural level of abstraction. In this paper we propose an
approach for resolving architectural mismatches, with the aid of architectural
reconciliation. The approach consists of designing and subsequently reconciling
two architectural models, one that is forward-engineered from the requirements
and another that is reverse-engineered from the COTS-based implementation.
The final reconciled model is optimally adapted both to the requirements and to
the actual COTS-based implementation. The contribution of this paper lies in
the application of architectural reconciliation in the context of COTS-based
software development. Architectural modeling is based upon the UML 2.0
