A web application architecture diagram is a visual representation of the components, relationships, and interactions of a web application. It helps stakeholders to understand how the application works, including its software components, databases, servers, and interfaces. The diagram provides a high-level overview of the application's architecture, making it easier to identify potential issues and optimize performance. It also helps developers to communicate the design of the application and collaborate more effectively and can aid in the planning and development of future enhancements and upgrades.
