A self-management infrastructure requires a self-representation to model system functionality concerns. The model-view-controller design pattern can improve concern separation in a self-representation. Future computing initiatives such as ubiquitous and pervasive computing, large-scale distribution, and on-demand computing will foster unpredictable and complex environments with challenging demands. Next-generation systems will require flexible system infrastructures that can adapt to both dynamic changes in operational requirements and environmental conditions, while providing predictable behavior in areas such as throughput, scalability, dependability, and security. Successful projects, once deployed, will require skilled administration personnel to install, configure, maintain, and provide 24/7 support. Message-oriented middleware is one of the foundations of distributed systems.
