Title: Towards a Complete and Minimal Basis for the Definition of Software Architecture Languages
Author(s): Hüseyin Yüksel, Johannes Reichardt, Chris Johnson
Reference: pp387-397
Keywords: software architecture, architecture description languages, metamodelling, programm comprehension, completeness, minimality
Abstract: A meta-metamodel, which we refer to as the ADL-Kernel, for the definition of architecture description languages is presented. The ADL-Kernel is complete and mi-nimal in the sense that each of its instantiations contains a minimal set of architectural elements capable of describing any software architectural solution. The ADL-Kernel is presented in terms of a hypothesis that is based on a stakeholder-oriented definition of software architecture and validated against current UML, as far as it is conformant with the underlying definition of software architecture.
