Styles of the Component-and-Connector Viewtype
The system contains a shared repository of customer accounts Account Database accessed by two servers and an administrative component. If viewhype may any questions please contact us: For example, a component may be a server in a client-server system. Cnonector Role of Architecture P.
Thus, assuming that both client-server and shared-data styles are important to understanding the system, views in both styles will include the same component, showing different patterns of interaction.
Similarly, by knowing properties about the reliability of the individual servers, you might be able to produce numeric estimates of the overall reliability of the system, using some form of reliability analysis.
Just Enough Software Architecture: Software Architectures and Documentation P. In the example, this is the module Stdio.
For Further Reading Part I. Click here to find out more. This system contains a shared repository that is accessed by servers and an administrative component.
Two of the three connector types in Figure 3. Uses of Architecture Documentation P. Such a view may contain many instances of the same component type.
c) Component-and-Connector (C&C) Views – Software Architecture in Practice
If you may any questions please contact us: Just Enough Software Architecture: A set of client tellers can interact with the account repository servers and communicate among themselves through a publish-subscribe connector. The Role of Architecture P. Often, these interactions are carried out using complex infrastructure, such as middleware frameworks, distributed communication channels, and process schedulers. If the view is to be used to reason about real-time schedulability, component types will likely viewgype schedulable entities.
Finally, a component allows an administrator to access, and presumably maintain, the shared-data store.
Seven Rules for Sound Documentation P. The database access connector supports authenticated administrative access for monitoring and maintaining the database.
In particular, there is a natural relationship between the componentsSplit, To-upper, To-lower, and Mergeand the modules that carry out the bulk of the computation. The same component may also act as a respository for data. Identifying and Managing Project Risk: The Nooks and Crannies. Implementation of this connecter will probably involve runtime mechanisms that detect when a server has gone down, queue client requests, handle attachment and detachment of clients, and so on.
For example, you might have ocmponent Web client component type that is instantiated many times within the same view. The component-and-connector viewtype is specialized by numerous styles. We are being shown a bird’s-eyeview of the system as it might appear during runtime.
