Summary: 3 8 IEEE SOFTWARE Published by the IEEE Computer Society 0740-7459/07/$25.00 2007 IEEE
can significantly disrupt the system when deci-
sions made later, during subsequent develop-
ment iterations, conflict with the original archi-
tectural decisions.
Researchers are investigating various meth-
ods and tools to help software architects effec-
tively document their decisions. However, such
tools' utility has yet to be fully validated. Doc-
umenting architectural decisions thus remains
difficult and we continue to lose important
information.
Architecture patterns address these docu-
mentation challenges by capturing structural
and behavioral information and encouraging
architects to reflect on decisions in a way that
doesn't interfere with the natural architectural
design process. Architecture patterns are easy
to use, giving developers a rich set of infor-
mation about rationale, consequences, and re-
