The 4+1 View Model of Architecture

  title={The 4+1 View Model of Architecture},
  author={Philippe B Kruchten},
  journal={IEEE Softw.},
The 4+1 View Model organizes a description of a software architecture using five concurrent views, each of which addresses a specific set of concerns. Architects capture their design decisions in four views and use the fifth view to illustrate and validate them. The logical view describes the design's object model when an object-oriented design method is used. To design an application that is very data driven, you can use an alternative approach to develop some other form of logical view, such… Expand
4.1.1 System Architecture - A View Perspective
Development and deployment of large software systems are among the riskiest of business ventures. Lack of ability to depict, communicate and evaluate the overall architecture of the system - toExpand

The proposed multi-view architectural model is an extension to the "4+1" view architectural model proposed by Kruchten, and the description and construction techniques for the extended architectural views are discussed. Expand
An approach to software architecture evaluation with the 4+1 view model of architecture
This paper presents an approach to evaluate software architecture with a 4+1 view model in UML and shows the practical applicability and features of the approach via an ATM example. Expand
Representing Build-Time Software Architecture Views with UML
We have found that some classes of software systems exhibit interesting and complex build-time properties that are not explicitly address by existing models of software architecture. In this paper,Expand
Relating Software Architecture Views by Using MDA
This work shows how relations among software architectural views can be established by means of strategies used in MDA in a systematic way. Expand

  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance. ICSM 2001
  • 2001
The idea of build-time architectural views is explained, how to represent them, and how they fit into traditional models of software architecture are explained, and a new architectural style is introduced, the "code robot" that is often present in systems with interesting build- time views. Expand
Views and Viewpoints in Software Systems Architecture
An overview of an approach to treating views as first-class entities within architectural description with respect to their usage in architectural specication is presented. Expand
Using Multiple Views to Model and Analyze Software Architecture : An Experience Report
Architectural modeling and analysis is a critical phase in developing large and complex software systems. The usefulness of multiple views has likewise long been recognized. In this experienceExpand
Data Model as an Architectural View
The elements, relations, constraints, and notations for the data model are described, which serves as the blueprint for the physical database, helps implementation of the data access layer of the system, and has strong impact on performance and modifiability. Expand
Multiple Views in Software Architecture: Consistency and Conformance Position Paper Multiple Views: Significance and Problems
The study of software architectures has grown as an autonomous discipline recently. A widely accepted, and very general, characterisation of software architectures can be sketched as follows Shaw andExpand


An Introduction to Software Architecture

This paper provides an introduction to the emerging field of software architecture by considering a number of common architectural styles upon which many systems are currently based and showing how different styles can be combined in a single design. Expand
Foundations for the study of software architecture
The purpose of this paper is to build the foundation for software architecture. We first develop an intuition for software architecture by appealing to several well-established architecturalExpand
Software Architecture and Design: Principles, Models, and Methods
This text shows how to design software systems that can be predictably implemented and readily maintained and extended, and integrates object-oriented design, structured design, and step-by-step refinement with the above topics. Expand
Using style to understand descriptions of software architecture
This paper considers conventionalized interpretations of software architecture as architectural styles and provides a formal framework for their uniform definition, allowing for the proof that the notational constraints on a style are sufficient to guarantee the meanings of all described systems.

An object-oriented, distributed architecture for large-scale Ada systems
This model is organized around multiple dimensions (or views) of software architecture and is used to describe the software architecture of a family of automated air traffic control systems currently under development by Hughes Aircraft of Canada. Expand
Object behavior analysis
Object Behavior Analysis nalysis is the study and modeling of a given problem domain, within the context of stated goals and objectives. It focuses on what a system is supposed to do, rather than howExpand
Software first: applying Ada megaprogramming technology to target platform selection trades
The focus of this paper is on UNAS’S open technology and how it was explohed to build and fully instrument benchmarks, thereby enabling order-of-magnitude reductions in the numbers of source specitkations and a truly sofiwaref~ approach to target platform selection. Expand
