Quality attributes usually assessed and analyzed at the architecture level, not at the code level. And finally, software architecture has gained increasing visibility in the last years as the software industry has recognized the role of software architectures in maintaining high quality and ensuring high quality and sustainability of software products. performance software architecture maintainability global software architecture

Service-Oriented Architecture

DZone

Service-Oriented Architecture Overview. A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is an architectural pattern in computer software design in which application components provide services to other components via a communications protocol, typically over a network. SOA offerings should provide a solid solution to the problem of complex architecture and code redundancies, enabling efficient interoperability between systems, applications, and services.

Ready for changes with Hexagonal Architecture

The Netflix TechBlog

Leveraging Hexagonal Architecture We needed to support the ability to swap data sources without impacting business logic , so we knew we needed to keep them decoupled. We decided to build our app based on principles behind Hexagonal Architecture and Uncle Bob’s Clean Architecture. The idea of Hexagonal Architecture is to put inputs and outputs at the edges of our design. The dependency graph in Hexagonal Architecture goes inward.

Self-documenting Architecture

I’ve heard the opinion from many technical leaders that it is reasonable to expect a new hire to take upto 6 months to learn about the code, the domain, and the architecture before they become fully productive. Why not self-documenting architecture?

Reinventing Performance Testing: New Architectures

Alex Podelko

New Architectures (this post). Cloud seriously impacts system architectures that has a lot of performance-related consequences. Cloud and virtualization triggered appearance dynamic, auto-scaling architectures, which significantly impact getting and analyzing feedback. The dynamic architectures represent a major challenge for both monitoring and analysis. APM Architecture Monitoring Performance Testing monitoring

Architectural Myopia

ACM Sigarch

I had a professor in grad school who used to joke that all architecture is reinvented every 5 years. Both virtualization and power burst onto the architecture community seemingly out of nowhere even though there was a clear historical basis and trend for both. How do we push ourselves out of our comfort zone(s) and examine the expanding role of architecture as it intersects other disciplines? ACM SIGARCH Architecture Interdisciplinary Opinion Vision

The topics to watch in software architecture

O'Reilly Software

Microservices, serverless, AI, ML, and Kubernetes are among the most notable topics in our analysis of proposals from the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference. The speaker proposals we receive for the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference are valuable because they come from speakers who are often the leading names in their fields. They also understand that business and architecture can no longer be compartmentalized, and that revenue is at stake.

How architecture evolves into strategy

O'Reilly Software

I should start by saying this section does not offer a treatise on how to do architecture. Vitruvius and the principles of architecture. Architecture begins when someone has a nontrivial problem to be solved. Everyone who goes to architecture school learns his work. Vitruvius is the author of de Architectura , known today as Ten Books on Architecture. In it, Vitruvius expands on the three requirements any architecture must demonstrate: Firmitas.

If every significant architecture decision has business consequences, then knowing the business model and which trade-offs to choose is maybe the most important skill of architects. But what is the actual relationship between a business model and a software architecture?

What is Serverless Architecture?

cdemi

Serverless is currently a hot topic in many modern architectural patterns. There will be many advances in the field over the coming years and it will be fascinating to see how they fit into our architectural toolkit. This has a huge impact on application architecture, however having said that, it's not necessarily a bad idea. Serverless FaaS Software Architecture Cloud

Service Oriented Architecture Testing (SOA Test)

Testlodge

SOA or Service Oriented Architecture is a software development framework employed for building a business application by using a number of small independent services. Taking this route is not only cost effective, but also easier to manage and organize, and it is made possible through SOA architecture. Many companies around the world choose to adopt such architectures, instead of building their own complex legacy systems. The Service Oriented Architecture Testing Process.

Computer architecture is an important and exciting field of computer science, which enables many other fields (eg. For those of us who pursued computer architecture as a career, this is well understood. However, we often hear anecdotes that the number of prospective graduate students applying to computer architecture/systems is small and shrinking. In most curriculums, undergrad students do not have much exposure to computer architecture.

Thoughts On Front End Architecture

Professor Beekums

Early in September I decided that I was going to rebuild the front end of my new product. Part of why I made this decision was because I had built my alpha with the intention of rebuilding it. A lot of that decision was because of what I wanted to do with my content pages. I personally dislike most home and content pages. They have a lot of content, but end up saying very little about what the product actually does

The Benefits of Software Architecture: Hierarchical Digital Twins

Having just concluded participation in another In-Memory Computing Summit , it has become even more clear to me that the key to mainstream adoption of in-memory computing software platforms is architecture — the root of a platform’s value to applications. This notion has been reinforced through four decades of work in computer architecture and software after it was first driven home to me by a luminary in computer architecture at Intel Corporation, the late George Cox.

Handling user-initiated actions in an asynchronous, message-based architecture

O'Reilly Software

A message-based microservices architecture offers many advantages, making solutions easier to scale and expand with new services. The asynchronous nature of interservice interactions inherent to this architecture, however, poses challenges for user-initiated actions such as create-read-update-delete (CRUD) requests on an object. This approach also minimizes network traffic throughout the architecture, as all external calls are handled by this service. Service architecture.
