First-Class Connectors to Support Systematic Construction of Hierarchical Software Architecture

By: Abdelkrim Amirat, Mourad Chabane Oussalah

Abstract

Having a representation of software architecture allows an easy exchange between the architect and programmer. Also, during the phases of maintenance and evolution, this representation helps to locate defects and reduces the risk of improper assembly of a new feature in the system. In addition, the distinction which exists between components and connectors allows a more explicit representation between the functional aspects and these of communication and therefore, makes the system easier to understand and to change.
