Complex software systems require expressive notations for representing their software architectures. Two competing paths have emerged, one using a specialized notation for architecture - or architecture description language (ADL), the other using notations applied generally throughout design, such as UML. The latter has a number of benefits, including familiarity to developers, close mappings to implementations, and commercial tool support. However, it remains an open question how best to use object-oriented notations for architectural description and whether they are sufficiently expressive as currently defined. In this paper, we present a mapping between Acmea notation designed for expressing architectures - and the UML Real-Time Profile - an object-oriented design notation. Specifically, we describe (a) how to map Acme descriptions to descriptions in the UML Real-Time Profile, and (b)the places where this mapping breaks down.

Keywords: Software Architecture, UML.
