Software Architecture and Design Patterns

• To understand the concept of patterns and the Catalog.
• To discuss the Presentation tier design patterns and their affect on: sessions, client access, validation and consistency.
• To understand the variety of implemented bad practices related to the Business and Integration tiers.
• To highlight the evolution of patterns.
• To how to add functionality to designs while minimizing complexity
• To understand what design patterns really are, and are not
• To learn about specific design patterns.
• To learn how to use design patterns to keep code quality high without overdesign.

Envisioning Architecture: The Architecture Business Cycle, What is Software Architecture, Architectural patterns, reference models, reference architectures, architectural structures and views.
Creating an Architecture: Quality Attributes, Achieving qualities, Architectural styles and patterns, designing the Architecture, Documenting software architectures, Reconstructing Software Architecture.

Analyzing Architectures: Architecture Evaluation, Architecture design decision making, ATAM, CBAM. Moving from one system to many Software Product Lines, Building systems from off the shelf components, Software architecture in future.

Patterns: Pattern Description, Organizing catalogs, role in solving design problems, Selection and usage.
Creational and Structural patterns: Abstract factory, builder, factory method, prototype, singleton, adapter, bridge, composite, fa├žade, flyweight.

Behavioral patterns: Chain of responsibility, command, Interpreter, iterator, mediator, memento, observer, state, strategy, template method, visitor.

Case Studies: A-7E – A case study in utilizing architectural structures, The World Wide Web - a case study in interoperability, Air Traffic Control – a case study in designing for high availability, Celsius Tech – a case study in product line development,
