A Reference Architecture Primer

@inproceedings{Muller2008ARA,
  title={A Reference Architecture Primer},
  author={Gerrit Muller},
  year={2008}
}
A Reference Architecture captures the essence of the architecture of a collection of systems. The purpose of a Reference Architecture is to provide guidance for the development of architectures for new versions of the system or extended systems and product families. We provide guidelines for the content of a Reference Architecture and the process to create and maintain it. A Reference Architecture is created by capturing the essentials of existing architectures and by taking into account future… 
An Approach for Capturing and Documenting Architectural Decisions of Reference Architectures
TLDR
The main contribution of this study is to present a systematic approach for capturing and documenting architectural decisions of reference architectures and to contribute to a more complete documentation, dissemination, and effective use of such architectures.
Consolidating a Process for the Design, Representation, and Evaluation of Reference Architectures
TLDR
Results achieved through the use of ProSA-RA have showed that it is a viable, efficient process and, as a consequence, it could contribute to the reuse of knowledge in several applications domains, by promoting the establishment of new reference architectures.
Current State on Representation of Reference Architectures
TLDR
This work identifies possibly all approaches used or proposed to represent reference architectures and uses a technique proposed by Evidence-Based Software Engineering (EBSE): the Systematic Review.
Coupling ontology with reference architectures to facilitate the instantiation process of software system architectures
TLDR
This thesis aims at facilitating the instantiation process of the software system architecture from the reference architecture by using an ontology, a tool to present the artefacts of a reference architecture in an organised and structured way.
A classification of software reference architectures: Analyzing their success and effectiveness
  • S. Angelov, P. Grefen, D. Greefhorst
  • Computer Science
    2009 Joint Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture & European Conference on Software Architecture
  • 2009
TLDR
This research facilitates design of more effective reference architectures that can be classified in one of these types, and defines five main types of reference architecture that have congruent goals, context, and design.
A systematic review on service-oriented reference models and service-oriented reference architectures
TLDR
This paper aims at presenting a detailed and analytical view about the establishment and use of reference models and architecture based on SOA, including models and architectures for different domains.
Reference architectures and variability: current status and future perspectives
  • E. Nakagawa
  • Computer Science
    WICSA/ECSA Companion Volume
  • 2012
TLDR
The main contribution of this paper is to present the current status regarding variability in the reference architecture engineering, and to present future research perspectives that could be conducted, providing new directions to thereference architecture engineering in order to become existing and new reference architectures more effective elements to the development and evolution of software-intensive systems.
Structuring Reference Architectures for the Industrial Internet of Things
TLDR
This work contributes to the state of the art by providing a structured analysis of existing reference frameworks, their classifications and the concerns they target, and supply alignments of shared concepts, identify gaps and give a structured mapping of regarded concerns at each part of the respective reference architectures.
Using Systematic Review to Elicit Requirements of Reference Architectures
TLDR
This paper proposes the use of Systematic Review as a technique to elicit requirements of reference architectures, and presents a case study on the software testing domain to show the viability of the idea.
RARep : a Reference Architecture Repository Tales
TLDR
RARep (Reference Architecture Repository), a web-based reference architecture repository supporting the dissemination of materials related to reference architectures is presented, which can facilitate the access to information on reference architectures and promote the sharing of architectural knowledge contained in such architectures.
