Software architecture is critical to the success of software development projects. Unfortunately, many projects are unsuccessful in their attempts to leverage architecture-based development, especially large-scale projects. Lost in a myriad of possible UML diagrams, project teams often resort to ineffective ad-hoc techniques.

The purpose of this book is to enable software architects, their managers, and other development team members to become more effective in directing the course of large-scale software development projects. Written by two experienced architects that have worked in the trenches on many projects, this book provides practical advice for all software teams about developing and capturing critical software architectural concerns.

Leveraging the recent IEEE standard on software architecture and using UML compatible with versions 1.4 and 2.0 this book describes a series of viewpoints for capturing the software architecture and related concerns. These viewpoints convey essential information to users, stakeholders and other members of the development team.

Large-Scale Software Architecture covers:

  • a series of UML based viewpoints for capturing software architecture and related concerns

  • useful techniques for development of software architectures

  • the roles and responsibilities of the software architect and the architecture team

  • traps and pitfalls of architecture development

  • utilization of reusable and off-the-shelf software frameworks and components

Whether managing, designing, developing or architecting large and complex systems, you will better understand how the software architecture can be captured and represented using this book.
