5.12 For Further Reading

Further reading about security can be found in [Ramachandran 02]; about the relationship between usability and software architectural patterns, in [Bass 01a]; and about availability techniques for distributed systems, in [Jalote 94]. [McGregor 01] is a source of information about testability.

The two-volume reference on architectural patterns, [Buschmann 96] and [Schmidt 00], discusses the MVC and PAC patterns (vol. 1) and pattern-oriented software architecture (vol. 2).

The Simplex architecture for availability is discussed at http://www.sei.cmu.edu/simplex/.

[Bachmann 02] discusses the use of tactics as a basis for analysis of modifiability and performance; [Chretienne 95] discusses various types of scheduling theory; and [Briand 99] discusses coupling metrics.

The Model-View-Controller pattern is documented in [Gamma 95], the Presentation-Abstraction-Control pattern in [Buschmann 96], the Seeheim pattern in [Pfaff 85], and Arch/Slinky, in [UIMS 92].
