The paper presents a solution for the evaluation of a model generated from an existing system against a planned architecture, to identify potentially occurring differences between the architecture and the implementation as soon as possible, in form of a plug-in for the Eclipse platform with the name of SAVE - Software Architecture Visualization and Evaluation. Besides the SAVE Core Model with which models on a high level of abstraction as well as models close to the implementation of a system can be built the evaluation process is explained in detail. Further more some special aspects of the plug-ins implementation which includes the plug-in structure and fact extraction with the Java Development Tools provided by the Eclipse SDK are explained. In addition a small case study is given to demonstrate the evaluation of a software architecture.
