The Need to Revisit Architectural Connectors

By Christos Kloukinas


Composing and analysing COTS-based critical systems depends on a great degree on the interaction patterns among the components and the strategies used by them to guarantee that the overall temporal, security and dependability requirements will be met. However, the element which naturally describes this system aspect- an architectural connector- is being continuously mistreated and underemployed. We believe that the notion of connectors needs to be revisited and we should built upon it, if we want to be able to faithfully describe complex critical systems in a manner which easily allows to identify the design problems and opportunities available to us for meeting the system requirements.
