Architecting the distributed software applications is a complex design activity. The selection of a best design among number of design alternatives is an important activity. To satisfy various the stakeholders’ functional and non-functional requirements of a particular application, there is a need to take a number of decisions. This problem has become the multiple decision making problem. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), integer programming, goal programming have been used in the context. In this paper we are proposing a frame work for dealing multi objective functions called an integrated approach of AHP and GOAL programming for selection of Software Architecture.
