In fact, steps 2 and 3 of this strategy are completely reusable for other ADLs. The fact that the largest part of the process is carried out at the meta-meta level allows us to work with a reduced number of notations (more than 100 notations for the meta level and 10 notations for the meta-meta level). In contrast to existing work [IVE 04] on the mapping of ADLs to UML, the second strategy has the advantage of being reusable on different ADLs and of automatically justifying the selected connections.

4 notations that best represent architectural notations. 4. 4 are representations of a deployable and replaceable system part which encapsulates execution. 0 [OMG 03] has been enriched by new architecture concepts such as connectors, ports and structural classifiers and has redefined the concept of components to be a subtype of classes in UML metamodel. Thus, components have an expressive power similar to the classes as they may have interfaces, they can contain other components or classes, etc.
