Abstract
The development of software systems must be done using platforms that allow the description of complex, distributed, dynamic and reusable architectural models. We present in this paper PRISMA, an arquitectural modelling approach based on aspects and componets, it uses a component definition language (components, connectors and systems) to define architectural elements at a high abstraction level and a configuration language to design the architecture of software systems. The component definition language increases reuse allowing importation of COTS and reduces complexity by integrating two modern software development: Component-Based Software Development (CBSD) and Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD). The configuration language designs the architecture of software systems by creating and interconnecting instances of the defined elements including possible imported COTS. PRISMA has a metalevel with reflexive properties for these two languages. For this reason, the elements of PRISMA can evolve and the topologies of PRISMA can be reconfigured dynamically.
