Abstract

We present an approach for software development in which we emphasize the architecture of a system as a central element during the whole software development cycle. We call this approach architecture-controlled software development. The main idea is to incorporate an architecture description model into a software system which is always kept up-to-date during software development. Based on this model we provide tools for validating and visualizing the defined architecture and for changing the model itself.
