Overview

  • Surveyed five similar approaches to documenting software architecture
  • To identify:
    • Their strengths and weaknesses
    • An optimum approach to documenting software architecture
slide3

Contents

  • Background:
    • Software architecture
    • Documentation approaches
  • Survey:
    • Comparison Framework
    • Review of the five approaches
  • Conclusions
  • Questions
slide4
Structures = Components and Connectors

Styles = Constraints on Composition.

Rationale = Non-Functional Requirements

Background

  • What is Software Architecture?
slide5

Adapted from “IEEE Recommended Practice for Architectural Description of Software Intensive Systems”. IEEE (2000)

Background - IEEE Standard 1471-2000

slide6

Background - Viewpoint Models

  • Viewpoint models utilize perspectives to separate the concerns.
  • Perspectives are variously called views, viewtypes, and viewpoints.
  • Different viewpoint models focus on the different uses of documentation.
    • Communication.
    • Design.
    • Re-use.
  • Other frameworks exist for classifying documentation.
slide7

Survey

  • Framework
    • based on IEEE 1471-2000,IEEE (2000).
  • Viewpoint Models:
    • “4+1” View Model,Kruchten, P. (1997).
    • SEI View Model, Clements, P. et al. (2002b).
    • ISO RM-ODP,ISO (1994).
    • Siemens Four View Model,Soni, D. et al. (1995).
    • Rational ADS,Norris, D. (2004).
slide8

Survey - Comparison Framework

  • Stakeholderseg. Architects, Testers, Managers.from “Documenting Software Architectures: views and beyond” (Clements et al, 2002a, page 10).
  • Concernseg. Performance, Implementation, Privacy.from “Software Engineering” (Sommerville, 2000, page 101).
  • Structureseg. Decomposition, Layer, Process from “Software Architecture in Practice” (Bass et al., 2003, page 39).
slide9

Survey – Example Translations

  • StakeholdersImplementers: Programmers and Systems Engineers.
  • ConcernsReliability: Quality of Service, Fault Tolerance, Availability, and Failure Modes.
  • StructuresDeployment: Hardware and Software components.
slide11

Stakeholders

Structures

Concerns

slide13

Rational ADS - Requirements viewpoint

  • SEI - Module viewtype
  • SEI - C&C viewtype
  • SEI - Allocation viewtype

Conclusions - Optimum Set

slide14

Conclusions - Future Work

  • Map Stakeholders to Concerns
  • Determine Implicit Stakeholders
  • Verify Optimum Viewpoint Set using Case Studies
slide15

Finale - summary

  • Software Architecture can be documented using different approaches
  • Viewpoint models use multiple perspectives based on the separation of concerns
  • Surveyed five viewpoint models
  • Identified their relative strengths and weaknesses
  • Identified an optimum set of viewpoints
slide16

Finale

  • Thankyou
  • Questions
slide17

Adapted from “Architectural Blueprints – the 4+1 view model of software architecture”, Kruchten, P. (1997)

Survey - “4+1” View Model

slide18

Survey - SEI View Model

  • Module Viewtype
  • Component & Connector Viewtype
  • Allocation Viewtype
slide19

Survey - RM-ODP

  • Enterprise View
