Abstract: Develop once, Use once is the common approach followed by software developers in software industry. Lot of software development effort, cost as well as time is wasted if the software components can’t be reused further. These efforts can be saved by reusing available components. In order to increase the availability of reusable components (with or for reuse), we need an effective component storage structure i.e. Repository and also automatic component addition and extraction from Component Repository. Auto-Detect-Fragment-Store is a staged technique which is used for the automatic storage and retrieval of source-code components. A component repository is constructed which stores automatically, fragmented code on the basis of inputs and outputs. This work is an effort towards automating component storage, its addition and retrieval in a way component can be reused and software reusability is enhanced.
