The idea of using software architecture patterns derives from the aspiration to make a scalable solution with the priority to meet users’ demands. Moreover, this concept includes such important aspects as security, manageability, and performance. The wrong selection of software architecture design may lead to negative consequences on the other hand. That’s why developers should learn the most popular ones and be aware of their usefulness in each particular case.
An architectural pattern is a pictorial representation of the whole system and its subsystems, as well as roles and responsibilities, rules, and even a roadmap to establish relationships among all these parts. Simply put, this is a kind of “blueprint” of the future website, application, or microservice which will be used during the development process.
Software architecture patterns are of great importance as they can bring solutions to various problems across different domains. With the employment of such a concept, teams can simplify testing procedures by dividing them into smaller segments, for example. By using software architecture patterns, developers can segment user requests into smaller chunks of data in order to avoid relying on a single server.
Below you can find some reasons for applying this approach during the application development phase.
It may seem difficult to distinguish between software architecture patterns and design patterns.However, it becomes more than transparent if we take both separately. Architecture patterns are used for creating business logic, user interfaces, and other aspects, while design is used for implementing business logic.
There are several software architecture patterns that are currently used by teams. Below you can find the most popular ones.
The model-view-controller pattern or MVC allows teams to break up the front-end and back-end parts of the code and to put them into different components. It simplifies the management of the whole code and makes it easier to adjust each part of the solution (backend and frontend) separately.
Model: A model contains the core functionality and data.
View: View displays the information to the user.
Controller: Controllers handle the input from the user.
By implementing such a pattern, teams can use the idea of blackboard to store global data. The blackboard can be updated by the knowledge source. The idea behind this architecture is that the control with multiple sources interacts with the blackboard. It goes through various sources and once it finds a solution, the control posts it.
Generally speaking, the Blackboard pattern involves three components:
Simply put, this architecture pattern defines the grammar of a language to be evaluated by the interpreter later. By utilizing this design, developers can technically use a regular expression, or even parse any human language and run the interpretation. As part of this pattern, an expression interface is implemented which tells the interpreter to interpret a particular context.
By taking a close look at the technology that can provide development teams with a means to boost productivity, lead engineers can be able to identify serious team composition problems. As a result, they can create appropriate training programs and facilitate their company’s long-term growth.
