A Large Scope Transformational Approach for Distributed Architecture Design
Many Architecture Description Languages (ADLs) appeared in order to model complex software solutions. Unfortunately, current modeling approaches do not take into account infrastructure related constraints and do not add non-functional requirements to architecture constructs. This paper describes a transformation-oriented method to design distributed software architectures. Our method is based on an ADL named IODASS. It uses semantically extensible building blocks with qualitative attributes that specify non-functional or infrastructure related requirements.
