Introduction
In the field of Software Architecture, there is a shift away from the paradigm of
describing Components and Connectors, and towards regarding Architecture as a set
of design decisions. Unfortunately such decisions are rarely documented explicitly in
the Software Architecture Document, which leads to inevitable loss of valuable
architectural knowledge. This in turn results in increasing the complexity of the
system, and hindering its ability to manage continuous change.
