Identifying architectural connectors through formal concept analysis of communication primitives
MetadataShow full item record
A set of interaction primitives and properties are systematically analyzed through Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) leading to identification of connector types and relationships among them. The approach is illustrated through a set of communication primitives from the web services modeling languages. The identified concepts are elaborated in terms of UML/OCL descriptions. The FCA based analysis and OCL descriptions can be used to automatically build an ontology of architectural connectors.
