Dewayne Perry, Computer Science
Alex Wolf's (now at Imperial College, London) and my work on software architecture began in the context of an architecture recovery project in the Bell Labs' 5ESS system (the big central office switching system) in 1989. While trying to recover the current architecture of 5ESS we began to think of what should be an appropriate model for software architecture, what should it include, how it should itself be structured, and how it should relate to the rest of the software life-cycle. Our work was one of the first seminal papers in software architecture and for the past decade has been the most cited software engineering paper. At the ACM SIGSOFT conference this month it was awarded one of the few Retrospective Impact Paper awards. I will talk about our model of software architecture and about the current state of software architecture.
