A Formal Support to Business and Architectural Design for Service Oriented Systems
edited by: Martin Wirsing, Matthias Hölzl
Architectural Design Rewriting (ADR) is an approach for the design of software architectures developed within SENSORIA by reconciling graph transformation and process calculi techniques. The key feature that makes ADR a suitable and expressive framework is the algebraic handling of structured graphs, which improves the support for specification, analysis and verification of service-oriented architectures and applications. We show how ADR is used as a formal ground for high-level modelling languages and approaches developed within Sensoria.
