Some of these problems follow from the usual pitfalls of visual documentation and are equally applicable to any of the viewtypes discussed in this book.

Each of the components is a filter that transforms character streams. We are being shown a bird’s-eyeview of the system as it might appear during runtime.

Seven Rules for Sound Documentation P. Just Enough Software Architecture: Viewtypes and Styles P. Pathways of communication between the components are explicit, indicating that during runtime, the pipe connectors will mediate communication of data streams among those components. If you may any questions please contact us: Also, the mapping of interfaces is not at all obvious. The component-and-connector viewtype is specialized by numerous styles.

c) Component-and-Connector (C&C) Views – Software Architecture in Practice

Finally, a component allows an administrator to access, and presumably maintain, the connecotr store. Often, these interactions are carried out using complex infrastructure, such as middleware frameworks, distributed communication channels, and process schedulers.


The publish-subscribe connector supports cnnector event announcement and notification. Viewgype Cookbook Cookbooks OReilly. Software Architecture in Practice 2nd Edition. Certified Ethical Hacker Exam Prep. If the view is to be used to reason about real-time schedulability, component types will likely be schedulable entities.

Identifying and Managing Project Risk: It may also be possible to carry out both qualitative and quantitative analyses of such system properties as performance, reliability, and security. This variant of the client-server style supports transparent failover to a backup server. Thus, assuming that both client-server and shared-data styles are important to understanding the system, views in both styles will include the same component, showing different patterns of interaction.

Although not illustrated in this example, the same code module might be mapped to several execution components: Similarly, by knowing properties about donnector reliability of the individual servers, you might be able to produce numeric estimates of the overall reliability of the system, using some form of reliability analysis.

Choosing the appropriate forms of interaction between computational elements is a critical aspect of an architect’s task.

Uses of Architecture Documentation P. For example, you might have a Web client component type that is instantiated many times within the same view.


These client components communicate among themselves by publishing and subscribing to events. Seven Rules for Sound Documentation P. The simple system illustrated here accepts a stream of characters as input and produces a new stream of characters identical to the original but with uppercase and lowercase characters alternating.

Styles of the Component-and-Connector Viewtype

The Process of Software Architecting. In particular, there is a natural relationship between the componentsSplit, To-upper, To-lower, and Mergeand the modules that carry out the bulk of the computation.

In the example, we have Main and Config. Uses of Architecture Documentation P. The Role of Architecture P. Python Standard Library Nutshell Handbooks with. The Nooks and Crannies.

For example, a component may be a server in a client-server system.

Relation to Other Viewtypes

Hence, there is no simple mapping between them. For Further Reading Part I. If you may any questions please contact us:
