Software Life cycle
To define a software product, you will have the following 2 types of requirements:1)Business requirements
Quality of service requirements (aka
are constraint or thenonfunctional and observable system qualities
)In the requirement phase, what the product is to do is defined.In the design phase, how the product is to be done is specified in term of high levelsystem architecture (components and interfaces among these components) and low leveldesign of each component spelled in algorithms and data structure regardless of the used programming language.
The key difference between the terms
is in the level of details. Architecture operates at a high level of abstraction with less detail. Design operates at a low level of abstraction,obviously with more of an eye to the details of implementation.
In implementation phase, the coding is done.In verification phase, various kind of testing like requirement/interface/unit/regressing(sanity) tests are performed.In the maintenance phase, the product is deployed in the operation and maintained untilits retirements.
