Part of the Practitioner Series book series (PRACT.SER.)


Several techniques have been proposed to maximize the reuse of components, of architectural designs, and even of the software designers’ experience in solving domain-specific problems. These techniques are partial in their life-cycle coverage and in the viewpoints that they represent. This Chapter reviews the contributions and usefulness of some of these techniques.


Unify Modeling Language Design Pattern Object Management Group Class Library Application Framework 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
