Software architecture the conceptual glue that holds every phase of a project together for its many stakeholders is widely recognized as a critical element in modern software development Practitioners have increasingly discovered that close attention to a software system s architecture pays valuable dividends Without an architecture that is appropriate for the problemSoftware architecture the conceptual glue that holds every phase of a project together for its many stakeholders is widely recognized as a critical element in modern software development Practitioners have increasingly discovered that close attention to a software system s architecture pays valuable dividends Without an architecture that is appropriate for the problem being solved, a project will stumble along or, most likely, fail Even with a superb architecture, if that architecture is not well understood or well communicated the project is unlikely to succeed Documenting Software Architectures, Second Edition, provides the most complete and current guidance, independent of language or notation, on how to capture an architecture in a commonly understandable form Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors first help you decide what information to document, and then, with guidelines and examples in various notations, including UML , show you how to express an architecture so that others can successfully build, use, and maintain a system from it The book features rules for sound documentation, the goals and strategies of documentation, architectural views and styles, documentation for software interfaces and software behavior, and templates for capturing and organizing information to generate a coherent package New and improved in this second edition Coverage of architectural styles such as service oriented architectures, multi tier architectures, and data models Guidance for documentation in an Agile development environment Deeper treatment of documentation of rationale, reflecting best industrial practices Improved templates, reflecting years of use and feedback, and documentation layout options A new, comprehensive example available online , featuring documentation of a Web based service oriented system Reference guides for three important architecture documentation languages UML, AADL, and SySML

Achei meio chato e com exemplos de diagrama que não são muito possíveis de aplicar. No entanto encontrei boas discussões sobre o que comunicar em arquiteturas, sobre tomadas de decisão etc.

This is one of those books about which it is difficult to say enough good things. I found the first edition very influential on my on thinking to say nothing of enlightening. Impressively, the authors have improved this second edition, for example moving the comprehensive sample documentation online, thus making room for more of the lucid and rational explanation of documentation practices that made the first edition so useful.I usually include a discussion of who would benefit from a reading in [...]

All software projects have architecture, but not all have formal Architecture. This is a book for projects of the latter sort. Although the text had gems scattered throughout, much of what was presented was much too formal for the more agile and informal environment I work.My recommendation is that most people will get the most value by skimming the prologue, especially sections P.2.2 and uses and audiences for architecture documentation, section P.4 on architecture styles, and P.5 on rules for [...]

Views is a powerful concept here because it accounts for the social complexities that one faces when they are asked to marshal an architecture role. If you don't understand these social dynamics, you will fail in a world of complicated stakeholders.

Documenting a software architecture is (very) difficult. This book aims to teach you how to document a software architecture, giving you clear advices (and a lot of knowledge) to accomplish your objective. Very well written, with a lot of examples.

Overall it's good substance but it's a little scattered through somewhat scholastic presentation and idiosyncratic terminology. I'd like to see (or perhaps write) a book that's half as long and that uses IEEE-1471 terminology.

Much, much better than the first edition. Unlike that version, this one has real world applicability.
