Architectural patterns are a fundamental aspect of the arch ite ting process and subsequently the architectural documentation. Unfortunately, there is only poor support for mo deling architectural patterns for two reasons. First, patt erns describe recurring design solutions and hence do not direct ly match the elements in modeling languages. Second, they support an inherent variability in the solution space that i s hard to model using a single modeling solution. This paper proposes to address… CONTINUE READING
