    Welcome to our New Website

    Welcome to the new website for Edition 2 of Software Systems Architecture!

    Edition 2 was published in November 2011 and is a major revision of the original book. We have updated most of the chapters and added over 130 pages of additional content. The most important changes in this edition are as follows.
