Abstract

UML is widely accepted as the standard for representing the various software artifacts generated by a development process. For this reason, there have been attempts to use this language to represent the software architecture of systems as well. Unfortunately, these attempts have ended in the same representations (boxes and lines) already criticized by the software architecture community.In this work we propose an extension to the UML metamodel that is able to represent the syntactics and semantics of the C3 architectural style. This style is derived from C2. The modifications to define C3 are described in section 4. This proposal is innovative regarding UML extensions for software architectures, since previous proposals where based on light extensions to the UML meta-model, while we propose a heavyweight extension of the metamodel. On the other hand, this proposal is less ambitious than previous proposals, since we do not want to represent in UML any architectural style, but only one: C3.
