Architectural Description of Dependable Software Systems.
Architectural description languages (ADLs) are used within the software engineering community to support the description of high-level structure, or architecture, of software systems. A major advantage of this is the ability to analyze and evaluate trade-off among alternative solutions. This chapter will discuss the role of ADLs for representing and analyzing the architecture of software systems. Since ADLs vary considerably on the modeling aspects that they cover, we will focus our discussions on how ADLs support structuring dependability issues.
