ArchStudio 4: An Architecture-Based Meta-Modeling Environment
The authors will demonstrate ArchStudio, an environment for software architecture modeling and meta-modeling. They will also showcase a set of innovative architecture-centric applications that use ArchStudio technologies as their basis. A recurring question in the world of software architecture modeling is how to support the diverse array of issues, concerns, and stakeholders that occur in complex software systems. Early Architecture Description Languages (ADLs) were limited to component-and-connector modeling, with additional distinguishing features. Later ADLs, including UML 2.0, AADL, Koala, and xADL 2.0 are distinguished by a broader perspective on architecture.
