Architecture. One of this entry's topics is architecture. There are three starting points that I recommend:
- Jan Bosch's home page. Mr. Bosch is the author of Design and Use of Software Architectures, which I reviewed on Amazon on 30 April 2001. I recommend Mr. Bosch's page and the book because it extends the Software Engineering Institute's Architecture Trade-off Analysis Analysis (ATAM) approach in ways that fill gaps that I feel are in the ATAM. This is not criticism of ATAM itself, because it will assure consistency and realism in defined architectures. That I prefer Mr. Bosch's approach reflects my preference, but does not exclude other methods and approaches that are equally valid. Remember, there is no such thing as a perfect model or approach, but some are more useful than others.
- USC Center for Software Engineering's Software Architecture group is an excellent source of leading edge research and information.
- Gert Florijn's software architecture resources has links to all of the major architecture sites on the web.
Open Source. There are two open source Oracle tools I want to share:
- Oracletool, which is an interactive, web based application that runs as a CGI script using your web server.
- TOra, which is a cross platform toolkit for Oracle which features an SQL worksheet with PL/SQL block parsing, PL/SQL debugger and editor with syntax highlighting, Schema browser, UNICODE support, printing and a full suite of DBA management tools.
