Software architecture evaluation methods aim at identifying potential maintainability problems for a given architecture. Several of these methods exist, which typically prescribe the structure of the evaluation process. Often left implicit, however, are the concrete system attributes that need to be studied in order to assess the maintainability of implemented architectures. To determine this set of attributes, we have performed an empirical study on over 40 commercial architectural evaluations… CONTINUE READING
