Architecture-based approaches have been promoted as a means of controlling the complexity of system construction and evolution, in particular for providing systems with the agility required to operate in turbulent environments and to adapt very quickly to changes in the enterprise world. Recent technological advances in communication and distribution have made mobility an additional factor of complexity, one for which current architectural concepts and techniques can be hardly used. The AGILE project is developing an architectural approach in which mobility aspects can be modelled explicitly and mapped on the distribution and communication topology made available at physical levels. The whole approach is developed over a uniform mathematical framework based on graph-oriented techniques that support sound methodological principles, formal analysis, and refinement. This paper describes the AGILE project and some of the results gained during the first project year.
