What is the textbook about?

In the English language something else is understood by the term "principle" where it has the meaning of "giving direction" than in the Dutch or Italian language where it means "mechanism of action."

In recent decades, this has ensured that internationally meaning of 'giving direction' has been learned, which unfortunately means that with this interpretation of principle, architectural principles lose a lot of power because they become optional in use, so in the current architectural field a principle is seen as' a guiding statement that rarely or never changes.

"For example:" Data is always stored in the organization as a single item and only in the appropriate source database."
