Goal Driven Architecture Development using LEAP

Tony Clark, Balbir Barn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Methods for goal driven system engineering exist and propose a number of categories of goals including behavioural, formal, informal and non-functional. This article goes further than existing goal driven approaches by linking goals directly to the semantics of an architectural modelling language called LEAP with an operational semantics. The behavioural goals are expressed using a Linear Temporal Logic and the non-functional goals are expressed as functions over meta-properties of the model. The meta-properties are supported using an encoding represented using Java reflection. The article describes the LEAP approach using a simple case study written in the LEAP language supported by the LEAP toolset.
