Last week, we had the author of TDD for a Shopping Website LiveProject. Friday at 11am Ranch time, Steven Solomon will be hosting a live TDD session just for us. See for the agenda and registration link

It is rather a question of semantics. IMHO: Architecture is a set of frameworks and the interfaces between them. They are really very similar conceptually but architecture contains frameworks. You can speak of architecture of a framework. In very remote way it is like building architecture that encompasses all the sub systems (electrical, air, plumbing, telephone, TV and such) of the building. Hope that helps.
Just to muddy the waters a bit ... many people define frameworks to have some special properties around "inversion of control". For example, when we switched from writing procedural C code to event driven Java code we gave up control during all the times the user is moving the mouse, typing in edit boxes, etc. The Swing framework calls us when events like button clicks happen. Frameworks tend to provide the basic structure of processing and call application code when they need information or think you deserve a chance to run a few lines of code. In contrast, "libraries" tend to deliver functional bits you can call without taking control from you. Hope that's useful.
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
