A UML Profile for Documenting the Component-and-Connector Views of Software Architectures
Source: Epidata Consulting
This paper presents a UML profile and a group of UML patterns for documenting the component-and-connector views of software architectures. They facilitate the creation of the component and connector viewtype in any UML 2.0 tool with a compliance level 3. The work discussed in the paper contributes to facilitating the documentation of all the software application's views using only one tool; curtailing investment in personnel training; and allowing the establishment of an adequate traceability between the architectural artifacts and the rest of the model.
