Abstract

Modelling the software architectures of large systems is a challenging task. A wide variety of abstractions are required by developers to assist them in describing and analysing such architectures, including information about the components and relationships that comprise a system, the static and dynamic structure of the system, and the behavioural responsibilities of components of the system. In addition, good tool support is needed to provide modelling, analysis, design and code generation, and reverse engineering facilities. This paper analyses several architectural modelling approaches and their tools. Deficiencies with these current approaches are used to motivate a synthesised modelling approach and appropriate tool support.
