Software architectures are specified by models.

  • To architect is to model.
  • To model is to describe.
  • To describe is to draw.

Software architectures can be defined by:

  • ADL (Architecture Description Language)—it defines an architecture formally.
  • Architecture View Model—it represents the functional and non-functional requirements of software
  • UML (Unified Modeling Language)—it is an object-oriented framework used in software modelling and
  • Archi—it is an open-source modelling tool for an enterprise architecture.
