Systematic modeling of architectural patterns is a challenging task
mostly because of the inherent pattern variability and because pattern elements
do not match the architectural abstractions of modeling languages. In this paper,
we describe an approach for systematic modeling of architectural patterns using
a set of architectural primitives and a vocabulary of pattern-specific architectural
elements. These architectural primitives can be used as the basic building blocks
for modeling a number of architectural patterns. We introduce profiles for the
UML2 meta-model to express the architectural primitives. The use of the primitives
along with the stereotyping scheme is capable of handling some of the challenges
for the systematic modeling of architectural patterns, such as expressing
pattern participants in software design.
