Architectural Fitness Function: Build Measurable Evolutionary Architecture

DZone

Evolutionary architecture is something every software architect thinks about. To support this evolution in Apiumhub we believe that fitness functions can help in finding how well a system meets specified architecture goals and constraints in an automated way. And today’s post is about architectural fitness functions. What Is Architectural Fitness Function? performance architecture dynamic static evolutionary architecture architectural fitness

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.
