The area of software architecture is no exception. by Paul Clements, Felix Bachmann, Len Bass, David Garlan, James Ivers, Reed Little, Paulo Merson, Robert Nord

The area of software architecture is no exception. The first book on the list, as well as the first book which you should read on the subject of software architecture. by Paul Clements, Felix Bachmann, Len Bass, David Garlan, James Ivers, Reed Little, Paulo Merson, Robert Nord. This one is a real classic in the field of documenting software architecture. It is the most comprehensive guide answering the questions from Why do I need documentation at all? to How to document SOA.

The award-winning and highly influential Software Architecture in Practice, Third Edition, has been substantially revised to reflect the latest developments in the field. In a real-world setting, the book once again introduces the concepts and best practices of software architecture—how a software system is structured and how that system’s elements are meant to interact. Distinct from the details of implementation, algorithm, and data representation, an architecture holds the key to achieving system quality, is a reusable asset that can be applied to subsequent systems, and is crucial to a software organization’s business strategy.

The authors have structured this edition around the concept of architecture influence cycles. Each cycle shows how architecture influences, and is influenced by, a particular context in which architecture plays a critical role. Contexts include technical environment, the life cycle of a project, an organization’s business profile, and the architect’s professional practices. The authors also have greatly expanded their treatment of quality attributes, which remain central to their architecture philosophy—with an entire chapter devoted to each attribute—and broadened their treatment of architectural patterns.

If you design, develop, or manage large software systems (or plan to do so), you will find this book to be a valuable resource for getting up to speed on the state of the art.

Totally new material covers

Contexts of software architecture: technical, project, business, and professional Architecture competence: what this means both for individuals and organizations The origins of business goals and how this affects architecture Architecturally significant requirements, and how to determine them Architecture in the life cycle, including generate-and-test as a design philosophy; architecture conformance during implementation; architecture and testing; and architecture and agile development Architecture and current technologies, such as the cloud, social networks, and end-user devices

Used this text book for a Master's of Software Engineering course on System Architecture. I would say the book is more of a reference than a read and learn type of book. I say this as the first group of chapters (1-12) covers Engineering Objectives and Quality Attributes. For each Quality Attribute, there are a few examples of tactics to solve them (for instance, for availability they discuss hot-spares for swapping out a failed component with an active replacement). Throughout the course, these chapters were extremely useful when building the architecture of an online collaboration system. In addition, the book discuses how tactics (and specifically which ones) cause trade offs and how to analyze them for your unique use. I now use this book at work when discussing the structure of new/existing products and it comes in handy when needing to make a tough decision. It also helps the book is an easy and understandable read.
Throughout the book are stories given by the authors to emphasize particular points that occasionally seem slightly shallow and potentially invented. Other parts of the book include interesting anecdotes about incidents in history. There are also a lot of parallels drawn to other subjects such as biology and naval engineering.

There are parts of the book that are thoughtful in analysis of software architectural design, but even the primary, core chapters describing quality attributes of software architecture and methods of encouraging their presence can be superficial.

The book strongly relates software architecture to business cycles and tends to be abstract in provided examples.
Three stars.
Great book for software architects. I also took the SEI online course for which this book is the textbook. Material is thorough and presented well.
Excellent book, very special cases and explanation.
Worth reading.
Simple but detailed
happy light
Classic read for IT Architects! Hope it was bit cheaper before I could get one for all my peers as a gift!
It was hard to imagine this book getter any better than it already was. I guess that was because I never expected so many changes. This is the most I have ever seen a new edition of a book change. If you own the second edition, you will definitely want this new one. It is almost like another book.

The big case studies are gone. They have been replaced with a ton of new material. If you don't own the first and second editions of the book, you can get the case studies on the publisher's web site.

This book has been my go to book for most of my software architecture career. It is what taught me about quality attributes, tactics, and scenarios. It provided my first introduction to the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM), the Quality Attribute Workshop (QAW), the Cost Benefit Analysis Method (CBAM), Active Reviews for Intermediate Designs (ARID), and the Attribute-Driven Design (ADD) method. In this new edition of the book they introduce the lightweight architecture evaluation. It is a slimmed-down version of ATAM. It is intended to be used on lower ceremony projects.

This new version has a ton of new material. One of the biggest changes is that the quality attributes covered now have their own chapter. There is a new chapter for Availability, Interoperability, Modifiability, Performance, Security, Testability, and Usability.

There is a new chapter dedicated to the technical, project, business, and professional contexts of software architecture. This chapter shows how architecture supports and is informed by other forces and activities in the different contexts.

Part four, Architecture and Business, contains three chapters dedicated to showing the relationships between the architecture and the business.

There is a new chapter on architecturally significant requirements and how to solicit those requirements from the goals set down by the business. This chapter introduces a new method for eliciting and documenting business goals in order to discover architecturally significant requirements. The new method is called Pedigreed Attribute eLicitation Method or PALM for short.

There is a new chapter on individual and organizational architectural competence. The chapter covers the technical duties of a software architect, the non-technical duties of a software architect, and the knowledge areas of the software architect. It also provides a framework for organizational architectural competence.

Part three, Architecture in the Life Cycle, shows how architecture relates to agile projects, shows how to elicit architecturally significant requirements, shows how to design the architecture and document the architecture, also how to test the architecture. Part three also covers how to reconstruct an architecture and evaluate an architecture.

One of my favorite new additions was chapter 27, Architectures for the Edge. An Edge dominant system is one that depends on the input of their users for success. Edge architectures that exist today are Wikipedia, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. It was just a really interesting read.

I could go on and on about the value of the content in this book. The bottom line is that if you are a software architect, or want to be one, this is mandatory reading, period.
