This paper describes a software architecture documentation tool (KaitoroBase) built within the Thinkbase Visual Wiki to provide support for non-linear navigation and visualization of Software Architecture Documents (SADs) produced using the Attribute-Driven Design (ADD) method. This involves constructing the meta-model for the SAD in Freebase which provides the foundation for the graph-based interactive visualization enabled by Thinkbase. The resulting tool displays a graphical, high-level… CONTINUE READING
