Abstract:

Software architecture is an increasingly important research topic and in this report we investigate the potential role of architecture in evaluating the properties of a system built to a particular architecture. Currently such architectural analysis is complicated for two main reasons authors of new architectures describe their creations in idiosyncratic terms and there is no clear way of understanding an architecture with respect to an organizations life cycle concerns-efficiency, maintainability, modifiability, and so forth. This report addresses these shortcomings by proposing a domain-based method for analyzing software architectures called SAAM Software Architecture Analysis Method.
