Software architecture has become an area of intense research in the software engineering community. A number of architecture modeling notations and support tools, as well as new architectural styles, have emerged.
The focus of architecture-based software development is shifted from lines-of-code to coarser-grained building blocks and their overall interconnection structure.
Explicit focus on architecture has shown tremendous potential to improve the current state-of-the-art in software development and alleviate many of its problems.
This course will expose participants to the concepts, principles, and state-of- the-art methods in software architectures, including domain-specific software architectures (DSSA), architectural styles, architecture description languages (ADL), software connectors, dynamism in architectures, and architecture-based testing and analysis.
In the process of studying these concepts, we will make explicit the boundaries of the field and discuss its relationship to other areas of software engineering, specifically requirements.
In addition to foundations, and practical experience with software architectures, the class will also introduce the participants to the state-of-the-art in software architecture research, future trends and state-of-the-practice.
- To give the participants understanding of the concept of software architecture and how this phase in the development between requirement specification and detailed design plays a central role for the success of a software system.
- The participants will get knowledge of some well-known architecture patterns, and be able to design, construct and evaluate architectures for software systems.
- In addition, the participants should get some understanding of how the developers experiences and the technical and organizational environment will influence on the choice of architecture.
