Abstract: Reliability is one of the most important quality attributes of a software system. One way to improve the reliability of a software system is to use software fault tolerance techniques. However, existing reliability prediction approaches for component-based systems either do not allow modeling software fault tolerance techniques or do not support defining explicitly reliability-relevant behavioral aspects of software fault tolerance techniques. This limits the ability to apply the approaches in different application contexts. In this paper, we extend the core model of a recent component-based reliability prediction approach to take into consideration software fault tolerance techniques and analyze their impact on the overall reliability of component-based systems. We demonstrate the applicability of our approach by modeling the reliability of the reporting service of a document exchange server and conducting reliability predictions.
