Architecture, Design, Implementation

Bereich: Whitepaper




The terms architecture, design, and

implementation are typically used informally in partitioning software specifications

into three coarse strata of abstraction. Yet these strata are not well-defined

in either research or practice, causing miscommunication and needless debate.

To remedy this problem we formalize the Intension and the Locality criteria,

which imply that the distinction between architecture, design, and

implementation is qualitative and not merely quantitative. We demonstrate that

architectural styles are intentional and non-local; that design patterns are

intentional and local; and that implementations are extensional and local.
