Modeling software architectures in the Unified Modeling Language
Abstract. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a family of design notations that is rapidly becoming a de facto standard software design language. UML provides a variety of useful capabilities to the software designer, including multiple, inter-related design views, a semiformal semantics expressed as a UML meta model, and an associated language for expressing formal logic constraints on design elements. However, UML currently lacks support for capturing and exploiting certain architectural concerns whose importance has been demonstrated through the research and practice of software architectures. In particular, UML lacks direct support for modeling and exploiting architectural styles, explicit software connectors, and local and global architectural constraints. This paper presents two strategies for supporting such architectural concerns within UML. One strategy involves using UML "as is," while the other incorporates useful features of existing architecture description la...
