So what artefacts make up an Application Architecture? It can be a huge variety of things, depending on the views that are required. A business view might for example be required that shows what major business applications exist in the organisation. A Solution Designer view might be required for an application that shows how the application works. An Enterprise Architect view might be required that shows how well an application conforms to the architecture standards adopted. A view might also be required that shows the business objectives, data (information) elements and the infrastructure that the application is deployed on – all within the same view.
