"Application Architecture" is the architecture of an application -- the software -- while "System Architecture" is the architecture of the whole system including any applications, databases, hardware nodes, etc. that make up the system.

Obviously this is just one definition for these terms. I've seen many people talk about system architecture even though they've actually meant the structure of the application.

Big grins. Here is my spew on Architecture


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
