Artifact

Artifact is a physical piece of data that is used or produced in a software development process, or by deployment and operation of a system.

Example

A Web Archive artifact (which may realize an application component) is composed of two other artifacts: Database Access Java Archive and Business Logic Java Archive. Two specializations of the Web Archive artifact are a Purchase Application Web Archive and a Quotation Application Web Archive. A Travel Insurance Database artifact (which may realize a data object) is associated with the Web Archive artifact.
