Software architecture has been advocated as an aŽective means to produce quality systems. In this working paper, we argue that integration between analysis conducted at different stages of development is still lacking. Hence we propose an architecture-centric approach, which by combining diŽerent technologies and tools for analysis and testing supports a seamless tool-supported approach to validating required properties. The idea is to start from the requirements, produce a validated model of the SA, and then use the SA to derive a set of conformance test cases. In this paper, we outline the process, and discuss how some existing tools, namely QuARS, ModTest, CowTest and UIT, could be exploited to support the approach. The integrated framework is under development.
