What’s it take to be a Software Architect « Bobby Dimmick – Pragmatic Architecture

A few years ago I got into an interesting conversation with a Security/Database Architect and a high level Systems Engineer regarding what it means to be a Software (or Systems or Enterprise) Architect. Long-story-short, the Engineer had been burned quite a few times by self-made Architects (think entrenched “Ivory Tower” Architects) while the Security Architect had actually met other Architects with passion, technical know-how, and the desire to truly develop value within their organizations.

AOP includes programming methods and tools that support the modularization of concerns at the level of the source code, while "aspect-oriented software development" refers to a whole engineering discipline.

Aspect-oriented programming

Logging exemplifies a crosscutting concern because a logging strategy necessarily affects every logged part of the system. Logging thereby crosscuts all logged classes and methods. History[edit] AOP has several direct antecedents A1 and A2:[1] reflection and metaobject protocols, subject-oriented programming, Composition Filters and Adaptive Programming.[2] Gregor Kiczales and colleagues at Xerox PARC developed the explicit concept of AOP, and followed this with the AspectJ AOP extension to Java.

What Are Composite Applications?

Composite application. It is wrong to assume that composite applications are by definition part of a service oriented architecture (SOA).

Composite application

Composite applications can be built using any technology or architecture. A composite application consists of functionality drawn from several different sources. The components may be individual selected functions from within other applications, or entire systems whose outputs have been packaged as business functions, modules, or web services.
