In other words, today's environments are distributed and highly heterogeneous. Applications are so large that one doesn't develop stand-alone systems anymore - applications are developed from existing components and are likely to use common services available in the target implementation environment. Since networks - especially the Internet - facilitate interoperability, today's applications need to interoperate with other applications and share information with them. Through modeling, architects attempt to manage the complexity of software systems better. The model allows the software architect to separate design from implementation: it... (more)
