4.5. Architecture Linkage to Software Development

If we apply proper architectural principles to create and maintain software structure, potential cost saving could be 50% or greater [Horowitz 93]. Good software structure is a function of the overall application architecture, the software interfaces or what is called confrontational architecture, and the implementation itself (Figure 4.7).

Figure 4.7. Computational Specification Links Architecture and Implementation

Computational interfaces may be the key enabler for improved software structure. Software interfaces as specified in IDL define boundaries between modules of software. If the software ...
