It Is What It Is Because It Was What It Was
January/February 2007 (vol. 24 no. 1)
pp. 14-15
Software systems usually have the same basic architectural pattern as their earlier incarnations, manifesting in decreasingly refined forms as we move back in time. Similarly, when a new problem confronts us, we try many different approaches, but over time, for the same kind of problem, solutions tend to converge to the same, more constrained, solution space.
Index Terms:
architecture, architectural pattern, software engineering, problem solving
