Architectural Styles

With time, some of the famous and widely used approaches and techniques among the architects have been grouped together into architectural styles. A particular architectural style represents the interaction and behavior pattern between the system and its components, along with a particular layout and structure. Some famous architectural styles are:

  • n-tier model

  • Windows DNA

  • Data-centric

  • Service Oriented Architecture

  • Plug-in system

There are many more styles, and each style can be customized to suit individual project needs. We will learn more about some of these styles in the coming chapters, along with some practical examples. It is very important to understand the concept, approach, and effective implementation of a style so that we can decide when to use which style in our own applications. One can even create a new style by combining any of the existing styles and customizing it to achieve greater efficiency and adaptability.
