Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current

engineered to order manufacturing  does not constitute an engineered design. In particular, engineering analysis, such as database normalization, is explicitly delegated to the development activities. Footnotes [9] This Object Oriented approach is motivated by several forces: Vendors use Object Oriented (OO) methodologies to define the architecture of their products. In some cases the OO components are provided through a gateway creating a traditional system with OO wrappers. In other products the system is constructed using OO Read More
