Abstract
To affirm the completeness, the success and the validation of RAs (Reference Architectures), a chain of validation process should be taking into account in the end of each assessment. The need behind the validation reveals from the necessity of achieving accuracy between the different components of the system, as well as, achieving a high level of abstraction. In the result of achieving a unique version of the suggested architecture to be considered as a reference for multiple projects. The existing methodologies, which allow driving the process of validation, are rare and incomplete. In this paper, we present three different approaches. Each one of them is described and applied into the case study, with the objective of extracting the loopholes to value the strength of each methodology. Finally, we investigate the results and draw the feedback to be used in the enhancement and development of new validating approaches related to RAs in software engineering.
