Abstract or Description

An important issue for the specification and design of software architectures is how to combine the analysis capabilities of multiple architectural definition languages (ADLs) and their supporting toolsets. In this paper, we describe our experience of integrating three ADLs: Wright, Rapide, and Aesop. We discovered that it is possible to achieve interoperability in ADL tools for a non-trivial subset of the systems describable by these languages, even though the languages have different views about architectural structure and semantics. To carry out the integration we used the Acme architectural interchange language and its supporting tools.
