Quality evaluation of software architecture with application to OpenH.323 protocol
The requirements towards software systems usually go beyond the correct functionality, the presence of certain quality demands are also very essential for the systems' acceptance by the stakeholders. So quality control and management must be carried out through the whole development process to ensure the implementation of required quality characteristics. This thesis focuses on the quality control of the software architecture. Several approaches for evaluating the architecture are presented. Furthermore the OpenH.323 protocol architecture is evaluated in a case study. That software architecture is evaluated with two approaches: Architecture Trade-O Analysis Methode (ATAM) and architectural metrics.
