The Service Availability Forum supports the realization of Highly Available systems by means of standards like the Availability Management Framework (AMF), a middleware service that manages the high availability of services provided by applications through the coordination of their redundant components. AMF configurations for applications, capable of providing and protecting services, can be generated from the software and from a set of configuration requirements (CR). The specification of CR requires a good knowledge of the AMF specification. Users/Customers may not have this AMF knowledge and are usually acquainted to specifying high level characteristics of services of interest. This paper introduces an approach aiming at bridging the gap between user requirements and configuration requirements for the design of AMF configurations.
