Abstract: Software Architecture is being widely used today to describe a very high level design methodology of large & heterogeneous software systems. A good Architectural representation scheme holds the key to the effectiveness of a Software architecture description and usage. In this paper, we look at UML (unified modeling language) as a prospect for a generalized architecture description language. UML also unifies the design principles of each of the object oriented methodologies into a single, standard, language that can be easily applied across the board for all object-oriented systems and a scheme AND-OR DFD method is introduced and developed.
