Documenting Software Architecture: Views and Beyond (2nd Edition)

From amazon. com:

Software architecture—the conceptual glue that holds each part of a undertaking jointly for its many stakeholders—is well known as a serious aspect in smooth software program improvement. Practitioners have more and more came across that shut awareness to a software program system’s structure will pay helpful dividends. with no an structure that's acceptable for the matter being solved, a undertaking will stumble alongside or, probably, fail. inspite of a very good structure, if that structure isn't really good understood or good communicated the undertaking is not likely to succeed.

Documenting software program Architectures, moment variation, offers the main entire and present tips, self sustaining of language or notation, on tips on how to trap an structure in a generally comprehensible shape. Drawing on their broad adventure, the authors first assist you come to a decision what details to rfile, after which, with instructions and examples (in a variety of notations, together with UML), aid you convey an structure in order that others can effectively construct, use, and keep a procedure from it. The booklet good points principles for sound documentation, the ambitions and methods of documentation, architectural perspectives and types, documentation for software program interfaces and software program habit, and templates for shooting and organizing info to generate a coherent package deal. New and greater during this moment edition:

* insurance of architectural kinds similar to service-oriented architectures, multi-tier architectures, and knowledge models
* Deeper remedy of documentation of motive, reflecting top business practices
* enhanced templates, reflecting years of use and suggestions, and extra documentation structure options
* a brand new, complete instance (available online), that includes documentation of an online service-oriented system
* Reference publications for 3 very important structure documentation languages: UML, AADL, and SySML

27 Whiteside and Wixon (1986) have urged the rejection of information processing cognitive models; they recommend a hermeneutic approach which aims at interpretation of particular cases rather than generalization or explanatory theory (Winograd and Flores, 1986). We are concerned with distinguishing the baby from the bath water. We favor an explanatory psychology of human-computer interaction; one that starts from an understanding of the real problems that have to be solved in order to provide better computer tools for people to use.

The problem space in supervisory process control (Figure 2) has two principle dimensions. One is the part-whole dimension representing the span of attention of the operator, the part of the system he is considering. The other is the means-end dimension representing the level of abstraction in the decision process. Note that the highest level of goals includes goal specification and constraint satisfaction. Considering the means-end space as a many-to-many mapping space enables initial "top-down" design, by considering constraints as part of the initial goal specification.
