Styles of the Component-and-Connector Viewtype

Viewtypes and Styles P. The Process of Software Architecting.

The Definitive Guide Definitive Guides. These client components communicate among themselves by publishing and subscribing to events. Finally, even in these types of cases, some correspondences are worth noting.

Additionally, component-and-connector models include as elements the pathways of interaction, such as communication links and protocols, information flows, and access to shared storage.

Overview | The Component-and-Connector Viewtype

The client-server connector allows a set of concurrent clients to retrieve data synchronously via service requests. Each of these connectors connectorr a complex form of interaction and will likely require nontrivial implementation mechanisms. Choosing the appropriate forms of interaction between computational elements is a critical aspect of an architect’s task. These modules can be more easily seen by factoring out modules that are associated with setup and modules that implement communication infrastructure.


The Role of Architecture P. Thus, assuming that both client-server amd shared-data styles are important to understanding the system, views in both styles will include the same component, showing different patterns of interaction. If the main server goes down, the backup can take over. The system contains a shared repository of customer accounts Account Database accessed by two servers and an administrative component. This system contains a clnnector repository that is accessed by servers and an administrative component.

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. For example, you might have a Web client component type that is instantiated many times within the same view.

It may also be possible to carry out both qualitative and quantitative analyses of such system properties as performance, reliability, and security. Each of the components is a filter that transforms character streams. The publish-subscribe connector supports asynchronous event announcement and notification.

Such a view may contain many instances of the same component type. For example, a connection between a client component and a server component might represent a complex protocol of communication, supported by sophisticated runtime infrastructure.

Similarly, by knowing properties about the reliability of the individual servers, you might be able to produce numeric estimates cknnector the overall reliability of the cinnector, using some form of reliability analysis. A set of client tellers can interact with the account repository servers, embodying a client-server style. Seven Rules for Sound Documentation P. The Nooks and Crannies.

This module determines how inputs from one are fed to others, using a configuration module, Config. Conversely, the pipe connector does not appear in the module view, although one might argue that it is most closely associated with the module Stdio.

Interprocess Communications in Linux: Each of the three types of connectors shown in Figure 3. Often, these interactions are carried out using complex infrastructure, such as middleware frameworks, distributed communication channels, and process schedulers. The database access connector supports authenticated administrative access for monitoring and maintaining the database. The same component may also act as a respository for data.
