Abstract

The success of today’s enterprises is critically dependant on their ability to automate the way they conduct business with customers and other enterprises by means of e-business applications. Legacy systems are valuable assets that must play an important role in this process. Selecting the most appropriate architectural design for an e-business application would have critical impact on participating enterprises. This paper discusses an initiative towards a systematic framework that would assist in identifying a range of possible alternative architectural designs for such applications and how some of these alternatives can evolve into formal architectural patterns or anti-patterns. This paper focuses on e-business applications with some requirements and assumptions that are often presented in a few specific domains such as e-finance. The concepts presented in this paper are demonstrated using a real life case study in the domain of e-finance and in particular capital markets trading.
