Design Architectures through Category Constraints

  • Jari Koistinen
  • Nils Klarlund
  • Michael I. Schwartzbach


We provide a rigorous and concise formalism for specifying design
architectures exterior to the design language. This allows several
evolving architectural styles to be supported independently. Such architectural
styles are specified in a tailored parse tree logic, which permits
automatic support for conformance and consistency. We exemplify
these ideas with a small design architecture inspired by real world constraints
found in the Ericsson ATM Broadband System.
