Interview and Book Review: Documenting Software Architectures: Views and Beyond, 2nd Edition (InfoQ)

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 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: Views and Beyond, 2nd Edition by Paul Clements and 8 other authors provides the most complete and current guidance, independent of language or notation, on how to capture an architecture in a commonly understandable form.
