Abstract

Even after years of research and practice in computer science and, in particular, in software engineering, software projects are still largely risky and unpredictable. Model-based engineering tools for software engineering recognize the importance of architecture and automated analysis. The tools compared in this discussion, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL), facilitate the modeling of software architecture and provide elements to understand it.
