Our book consists of three parts, reflecting each portion of the definition. Incremental change Incremental change relies on continuous delivery practices like deployment pipelines, mature DevOps, good testing culture, and other current agile engineering best practices. When combined with a granular, modular architecture, incremental change allows developers to make small modifications at the architectural level without breaking unrelated pieces.
Incremental change is the machinery that enables evolutionary architectures to evolve.
Multiple dimensions Architects commonly focus on a narrow dimension of a software project, the technical architecture: frameworks, dependencies, integration architecture, and so on. But real software projects contain numerous orthogonal concerns: data architecture, security, scalability, testability, and a host of others.
Modern architectures that support evolution must accommodate all these important dimensions of architecture--continuously. When building an evolutionary architecture, architects must consider each dimension affected. For example, it isn't useful to build an evolvable technical architecture with an intractable data schema, or evolve in a way that harms security. Fitness Functions Evolutionary architecture allows different parts of the system to evolve in the ways most sensible to solve a problem.
However, we don't want the system to evolve in a way that harms some architectural dimension. For example, improving performance with caching might accidentally harm security in the process. How can we build guidelines within the architecture to support change but guard specific characteristics?
An architectural fitness function provides an objective integrity assessment of some architectural characteristic s.
Fitness functions employ a wide variety of implementation mechanisms: tests, metrics, monitoring, logging, and so on, to protect one or more architectural dimensions. We define a variety of categories of fitness functions: triggered versus continual, atomic versus holistic, and a variety of others.
When we identify a dimension in architecture affected by change, we define fitness functions to protect against undesirable breakage. Evolutionary Architecture We offer a new perspective on evolving architecture, making "evolvability" a first-class "-ility" in software projects. We provide a logical framework for identifying and protecting parts of the architecture that evolve: identify the important dimensions, define fitness functions to ensure compliance, and use incremental change engineering practices such as deployment pipelines to automatically verify fitness.
The concepts of evolutionary architecture also help automate previously underserved constituents "non-functional requirements" by providing a framework for identifying important dimensions, with their critical characteristics, and the mechanism via fitness functions for verifying the veracity of those attributes continually.
This in turn allows architects to build systems that support ongoing change with confidence that important qualities won't degrade. Identification of architecture dimension and fitness function occurs at both project inception and as an ongoing concern, building continual architecture.
