  • Software architecture has become one of the most active research topics in software engineering in recent years. One of the distinct features of software architecture research is to explicitly study the interconnections (connectors) among system components. In this paper, we show how to formally specify several well-known general connectors in a software architecture methodology called SAM. Related work is discussed and compared. Our results establish the basis for reusing these defined connectors and for building more sophisticated connectors from them.
