In software architecture a view is a representation of a set of system elements and the relationships associated with them. Sometimes view can be mistacen with structure which is the set of elements itself, as they exist in software. For example, a module structure is the set of the system's modules and their organization. A module view is the representation of that structure, as documented by and used by some system stakeholders.
Module view category documents a system’s principal units of implementation (something like construction blueprint for the source code and data store, used for analysis and communication system's functionality to stakeholders).
