Software Architecture Views and Perspectives

I'm fairly interested in the literature on Software Architecture Views and Perspectives. Folks here may remember my work on Dimensions and Views of SCM Architecture as one of the reasons why ...

The text of the entire 2nd edition of the "Software Architecture in Practice" textbook is available online as one source fo information on the subject (among others). I found another good link (& book reference) at

It's the website for the book "Software Systems Architecture: Working With Stakeholders Using Viewpoints and Perspectives" by Nick Rozanski and Eoin Woods. They classify/use "Viewpoints" and "Perspectives" as follows:

  • Functional
  • Information
  • Concurrency
  • Development
  • Deployment
  • Operational
  • Security
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Availability and Resilience
  • Evolution
  • Accessibility
  • Development Resource
  • Internationalization
  • Location
  • Regulation
  • Usability
