Using types to enforce architectural structure, 2003: abstract (software architecture describes the high-level structure of a software system, and can be used for design, analysis, and software evolution tasks) pp. 1-2 (software architecture is the high-level organization of a software system as a collection of components, connections between the components, and constraints on how the components interact)
- found: Inspec, via Engineering village 2, Feb. 10, 2004 (Software architecture; software architecture describes the structure of a system, enabling more effective design, program understanding, and formal analysis)
- found: TechEncyclopedia, via WWW, Feb. 10, 2004 (software architecture, the design of application or system software that incorporates protocols and interfaces for interacting with other programs and for future flexibility and expandability. A self-contained, stand-alone program would have program logic, but not a software architecture)
- found: The new IEEE standard dict. of electrical and electronics terms, c1993 (architectural design (software). (A) The process of defining a collection of hardware and software components and their interfaces to establish the framework for the development of a computer system. (B) The result of the process in (A).)
- found: Free on-line dict. of computing, via WWW, Feb. 10, 2004 (architecture: Design, the way components fit together. The term is used particularly of processors, both individual and in general. "The ARM has a really clean architecture". It may also be used of any complex system, e.g. "software architecture", "network architecture")
- found: LC database, Feb. 10, 2004 (software architecture)
- found: Google search, Feb. 10, 2004 (Software architecture forms the backbone for building successful software-intensive systems. An architecture largely permits or precludes a system's quality attributes such as performance or reliability; The software architecture of a program or computing system is the structure or structures of the system, which comprise software elements, the externally visible properties of those elements, and the relationships among them; The structure of the components of a program/system, their interrelationships, and principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time; Software architecture is the study of the large-scale structure and performance of software systems. Important aspects of a system's architecture include the division of functions among system modules, the means of communication between modules, and the representation of shared information; Software architecture is loosely defined as the organizational structure of a software system including components, connections, constraints, and rationale; Software architecture deals with the design and implementation of the high-level structure of the software. It is the result of assembling a certain number of architectural elements in some well-chosen forms to satisfy the major functionality and performance requirements such as scalability and availability. Software architecture deals with abstraction, with decomposition and composition, with style and esthetics.)
