Dear Jitsi Developers,
We are doing undergraduate research on software architecture patterns and
quality attributes for Utah Valley University. We recently analyzed the
work published on Jitsi in the Architecture of Open Source Applications
<http://aosabook.org/en/index.html> (AOSA) and referenced it in a paper we
presented at the 13th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture
(WICSA), as attached. As a part of our continuing research we wish to
validate our architectural analysis for Jitsi with the current developers.
We would like to know if we are missing any patterns or quality attributes
that may have been included in Jitsi, or if there are any we listed that
aren’t used. Any additional comment on these topics you might have would
also, of course, be welcome.
We believe we found the following software architectural patterns in this
*Is This Found in the Architecture? (yes / no / don’t know)*
We also identified the following quality attributes:
*Is This Found in the Architecture?*
For your convenience, we have a complete list below of the patterns and
quality attributes we referred to when conducting our research. To clarify,
we are specifically studying *architectural* patterns, rather than design
patterns such as the GoF patterns.
*Architectural Patterns Considered*
*Quality Attributes Considered*
Master and Commander
Model View Controller
Peer to Peer
Pipes and Filters
Presentation Abstraction Control
Please respond by October 17, if possible.
Thank you for considering our request, and for your continued work on Jitsi.
