This book comes as a result of an effort to bring together the research communities of software architectures and dependability.

Architecting Dependable Systems III

As software systems become ubiquitous, the issues of dependability become more and more crucial. Given that solutions to these issues must be considered from the very beginning of the design process, it is reasonable that dependability is addressed at the architectural level. This book comes as a result of an effort to bring together the research communities of software architectures and dependability. This state-of-the-art survey contains 16 carefully selected papers originating from the Twin Workshops on Architecting Dependable Systems (WADS 2004) accomplished as part of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2004) in Edinburgh, UK and of the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2004) in Florence, Italy. The papers are organised in topical sections on architectures for dependable services, monitoring and reconfiguration in software architectures, dependability support for software architectures, architectural evaluation, and architectural abstractions for dependability.

Architecting Dependable Systems VII

As software systems become increasingly ubiquitous, issues of dependability become ever more crucial. Given that solutions to these issues must be considered from the very beginning of the design process, it is clear that dependability and security have to be addressed at the architectural level. This book, as well as its six predecessors, was born of an effort to bring together the research communities of software architectures, dependability, and security. This state-of-the-art survey contains expanded, peer-reviewed papers based on selected contributions from the Workshop on Architecting Dependable Systems (WADS 2009), held at the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2009), as well as a number of invited papers written by renowned experts in the area. The 13 papers are organized in topical sections on: mobile and ubiquitous systems, architecting systems, fault management, and experience and vision.

Architecting Critical Systems

Architecting critical systems has gained major importance in commercial, governmental, and industrial sectors.

Architecting Critical Systems

Architecting critical systems has gained major importance in commercial, governmental, and industrial sectors. Emerging software applications encompass practicalities that are associated with either the whole system or some of its components. Therefore, effective methods, techniques, and tools for constructing, testing, analyzing, and evaluating the architectures for critical systems are of major importance. Furthermore, these methods, techniques, and tools must address issues of dependability and security, while focusing not only on the development, but also on the deployment and evolution of the architecture. This newly established ISARCS symposium provided an exclusive forum for exchanging views on the theory and practice for architecting critical systems. Such systems are characterized by the perceived severity of consequences that faults or attacks may cause, and architecting them requires appropriate means to assure that they will fulfill their specified services in a dependable and secure manner. The different attributes of dependability and security cannot be considered in isolation for today's critical systems, as architecting critical systems essentially means finding the right trade-off among these attributes and the various other requirements imposed on the system. This symposium therefore brought together the four communities working on dependability, safety, security, and testing/analysis, each addressing to some extent the architecting of critical systems from their specific perspective. To this end, the symposium united the following three former events: the Workshop on Architecting Dependable Systems (WADS); the Workshop on the Role of Software Architecture for Testing and Analysis (ROSATEA); and the Workshop on Views on Designing Complex Architectures.

Future Proof Software Systems

This book focuses on software architecture and the value of architecture in the development of long-lived, mission-critical, trustworthy software-systems. The author introduces and demonstrates the powerful strategy of “Managed Evolution,” along with the engineering best practice known as “Principle-based Architecting.” The book examines in detail architecture principles for e.g., Business Value, Changeability, Resilience, and Dependability. The author argues that the software development community has a strong responsibility to produce and operate useful, dependable, and trustworthy software. Software should at the same time provide business value and guarantee many quality-of-service properties, including security, safety, performance, and integrity. As Dr. Furrer states, “Producing dependable software is a balancing act between investing in the implementation of business functionality and investing in the quality-of-service properties of the software-systems.” The book presents extensive coverage of such concepts as: Principle-Based Architecting Managed Evolution Strategy The Future Principles for Business Value Legacy Software Modernization/Migration Architecture Principles for Changeability Architecture Principles for Resilience Architecture Principles for Dependability The text is supplemented with numerous figures, tables, examples and illustrative quotations. Future-Proof Software-Systems provides a set of good engineering practices, devised for integration into most software development processes dedicated to the creation of software-systems that incorporate Managed Evolution.

Software Engineering of Fault Tolerant Systems

This book builds on this trend and investigates how fault tolerance mechanisms can be used when engineering a software system.

Software Engineering of Fault Tolerant Systems

When architecting dependable systems, fault tolerance is required to improve the overall system robustness. Many studies have been proposed, but the solutions are usually commissioned late during the design and implementation phases of the software life-cycle (e.g., Java and Windows NT exception handling), thus reducing the error recovery effectiveness. Since the system design typically models only normal behaviors of the system while ignoring exceptional ones, the generated system implementation is unable to handle abnormal events. Consequently, the system may fail in unexpected ways due to some faults. Researchers have advocated that fault tolerance management during the entire life-cycle improves the overall system robustness and that different classes of exceptions must be identified for each identified phase of software development, depending on the abstraction level of the software system being modeled. This book builds on this trend and investigates how fault tolerance mechanisms can be used when engineering a software system. New problems will arise, new models are needed at different abstraction levels, methodologies for mode driven engineering of such systems must be defined, new technologies are required, and new validation and verification environments are necessary.

Distributed Systems for System Architects

The primary audience for this book are advanced undergraduate students and graduate students. Computer architecture, as it happened in other fields such as electronics, evolved from the small to the large, that is, it left the realm of low-level hardware constructs, and gained new dimensions, as distributed systems became the keyword for system implementation. As such, the system architect, today, assembles pieces of hardware that are at least as large as a computer or a network router or a LAN hub, and assigns pieces of software that are self-contained, such as client or server programs, Java applets or pro tocol modules, to those hardware components. The freedom she/he now has, is tremendously challenging. The problems alas, have increased too. What was before mastered and tested carefully before a fully-fledged mainframe or a closely-coupled computer cluster came out on the market, is today left to the responsibility of computer engineers and scientists invested in the role of system architects, who fulfil this role on behalf of software vendors and in tegrators, add-value system developers, R&D institutes, and final users. As system complexity, size and diversity grow, so increases the probability of in consistency, unreliability, non responsiveness and insecurity, not to mention the management overhead. What System Architects Need to Know The insight such an architect must have includes but goes well beyond, the functional properties of distributed systems.
