dc.descriptionThis is a pre-print of an article whose final and definitive form has been published in Computer Standards & Interfaces, vol. 19 no.7 © 1998 Elsevier Science; the original publication is available at: www.elsevier.com doi:10.1016/S0920-5489(98)00024-5en_US
dc.description.abstractIt could be argued that the primary issue to be dealt with in software engineering today is re-use of software. Current software development rarely, if ever, starts from nothing. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the development of specifications. To overcome this problem, various works have attempted to show how specifications can be built using architectural principles. We discuss one such approach in particular, the Architectural Semantics of Open Distributed Processing. We show the limitations of this work with regard to the architecting of specifications and propose a new approach, based on frameworks. To highlight the approach we use the work currently being done in the TOSCA project in its development of a service creation and validation environment for telecommunication services.en_US
