Abstract

A common approach to defining architectural views is to have independent heterogeneous representations that are tailored to each view's purpose, but this makes reconciling views into an overall architectural description harder. In this paper we put forward a complementary (not alternative) approach in which some views are derived from a given architecture description language (ADL) in a systematic way, by listing the design questions each view should answer. The approach is based on constructing the language's metamodel and extending it with the entities and associations needed to capture and explicitly relate the required views.
