Architectural Integration and Evolution in a Model World
Authors: Alexander Egyed and Richard Hilliard
Architectural Description Languages (ADLs) fall into the narrow category of frequently using only one fixed representation scheme. Over the past years, it has become more obvious that no single such ADL is adequate in addressing a large number of stakeholder concerns. This paper, therefore, discusses the need and challenges of multi-view development with ADLs and introduces a decorative stance in handling view integration issues and scalability concerns related to consistency checking.
