Darwin is an Architecture Description Language (ADL). It can be used in a software engineering context to describe the organisation of a piece of software in terms of components, their interfaces and the bindings between components. In comparison to others ADLs, such as Wright, the language does not provide the notion of connectors as a first-class concept. The FSP language can be used to describe the behaviour modelling and LTSA can be used for analysis. The idea is to include the FSP code in the Darwin code like this:

Its use of FSP language allow the verification of the temporal properties of the architecture.

It was developed at Imperial College London.
