Abstract: The growth of various software architectural frameworks and models provides a standard governing structure for different types of organizations. Selection of a suitable framework for a particular environment needs much more detailed information in various aspects and a reference guide of features should be provided. This paper brings out the history of software architecture with a new evolution tree. It also technically analyses well known frameworks used in industries and other governmental organizations and lists out the supportive tools for them. This paper presents the comparative chart that can be used as a reference guide to understand top level frameworks and to further research to enable and promote the utilization of these frameworks in various environments.
