Towards a UML Profile for Software Architecture Descriptions
Abstract. To formally describe architectures of software systems, specific languages called Architecture Description Languages (ADLs) have been developed by academic institutions and research labs. However, more and more research and industrial projects are using the standard Unified Modeling Language (UML) for representing software architectures of systems. In this paper, we foow to extend the UML by incorporating some key abstractions found in current ADLs, such as connectors, components and configurations, and how the UML can be used for modeling architectural viewpoints. Our approach is demonstrated by the software architecture of a video surveillance system. It is therefore the purpose of the paper to show that a UML profile for software architectractions is needed.
