Software Architecture



  • 2010: Fernando Barraza ,

Credits: 3

Requirements: Basic knowledge of Java programming language, UML and Software Engineering.

Saturdays 1:00-4:00 p.m, from 23th Feb to March 9 and
Fridays 6:00-9:00 p.m., from March 15 to Jun 7 (except Easter week)


The main objective of the course is set out formal guidelines from software engineering to build applications that observed Software Architectures adjusted requirements and technological features within a software development process. These guidelines provide support for the concept of Software Architecture following methodologies for the design, implementation and testing of software architectures and using different languages for describing software architectures that allow them to rigorously representation according to the software specifications to build.
