Pardon my meticulousness, but I would dispute your observation of
Explicit Invocation in favor of Implicit Invocation.
Also, Virtual Machine pattern seems to be missing from your list.
I also would like to share my impression of your paper:
- I think you need a more substantial body of knowledge.
- You accepted a common architectural pattern taxonomy, that might
introduce a bias into your study. Consider coming up with a taxonomy
that is more adequate to your study.

Hello nginx Community,
I am part of an undergraduate research group focusing on software
architecture patterns and quality attributes at Utah Valley University.
We recently analyzed the work published on nginx in the Architecture of
Open Source Applications <http://aosabook.org/en/index.html>(AOSA) and
referenced it in a paper we presented at the 13th Working IEEE/IFIP
Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA), as attached. As a part of
our continuing research we wish to validate our architectural analysis
for nginx with the current developers.
We would like to know if we are missing any patterns or quality
attributes that may have been included in nginx, or if there are any we
listed that aren’t used. Any additional comment on these topics you
might have would also, of course, be welcome.
We believe we found the following software architectural patterns in
*Pattern Name | Is This Found in the Architecture? (yes / no / don't
know) | Comments (optional)*
Event System Explicit Invocation Indirection Layer Layers Pipes & Filters
We also identified the following quality attributes:
*Attribute Name | Is This Found in the Architecture? | Comments (optional)*
Scalability Usability Extensibility Performance Maintainability
For your convenience, we have a complete list below of the patterns and
quality attributes we referred to when conducting our research. To
clarify, we are specifically studying architecturalpatterns, rather than
design patterns such as the GoF patterns.
Architectural Patterns Considered
Quality Attributes Considered
Master and Commander
Model View Controller
Peer to Peer
Pipes and Filters
Presentation Abstraction Control
Please respond by October 25th, if possible.
Thank you for considering our request, and for your continued work on nginx.
