    Next generation networks, as well as the Future Internet, need to provide context-sensitive services that adapt to changing user needs, business goals, and environmental conditions. This article presents a novel autonomic management methodology and associated architecture to make the networks and devices that it manages responsive to context-aware business needs. This approach provides a mapping b... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1695 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we address high availability in model-driven SOAs, for applications that are orchestrations of services and are defined by their (behavioural) models. We describe here how to integrate a high availability middleware, like opensaf, in MaTRICS, our model-based service oriented platform for remote intelligent configuration and management of systems and services. We present a method for ... View full abstract»

    The Java 2 platform, enterprise edition (J2EE) defines a model for developing multi-tier distributed applications, such as e-commerce applications. Such applications are typically composed of a Web server, a servlet server, optionally an EJB server and a database server. Clusters allow replication of each tier instance, thus providing an appropriate infrastructure for high availability and scalabi... View full abstract»

  • Change Support in Adaptive Software: A Case Study for Fine-Grained Adaptation

    Adaptive software is a closed-loop system which aims at adjusting itself in different situations at runtime. This paper looks at adaptation as changes in the context of dynamic software evolution, and proposes a conceptual model for these changes based on Activity Theory. This model consists of a hierarchy of activities making changes, and the objectives motivating these changes. This model is an ... View full abstract»

    An essential element in the engineering of computer systems are design patterns that capture current best practice and knowledge about recurring solutions for standard problems. In case of decentralized autonomic computing systems, also known as self-organizing emergent systems, appropriate design patterns have to structurally describe decentralized coordination mechanisms along with information o...

    This paper addresses the problems of delivering autonomic management of large-scale networks. It encompasses both the governance of networks of autonomic components and the autonomic governance of networks and indeed the provision of the latter by the former. For this it is necessary to consider the complexity of the systems involved and the mastering of this complexity by distributed self-*<... View full abstract»

  • An Autonomic System for Close Air Support

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):69 - 76
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1296 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Close Air Support (CAS) planning in the past has been primarily a mission preplanning activity. Due to the types of military operations being conducted, the need for CAS is becoming harder to predict than in past operations. For immediate CAS requests, as many as 15 steps need to be followed, many of them using voice communication via radios in noisy environments. This often results in delays due ... View full abstract»

  • ASSL Specification and Code Generation of Self-Healing Behavior for NASA Swarm-Based Systems

    The autonomic system specification language (ASSL) is a framework for formally specifying, validating and generating autonomic systems. This paper presents concrete results on the use of ASSL to specify a self-healing behavior model for NASA swarm-based exploration missions and to generate an application skeleton of the same. We present the specification and experiment with the generated code to d... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3508 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we describe the design of a scientific workflow execution framework that integrates runtime verification to monitor its execution and checking it against the formal specifications. For controlling workflow execution, this framework provides for data provenance, execution tracking and online monitoring of each work flow task, also referred to as participants. The sequence of particip... View full abstract»

    In the last three years we have experimented using contracts as to enable the interoperability of distributed systems, with our main focus being autonomic systems. Starting with the definitions of contracts in the TM Forum's NGOSS architecture, we have experimented with contracts from three different viewpoints: architecture, meta-model and implementation. This paper introduces the results of that... View full abstract»

    Autonomic Systems aim to reduce the costs of operating information and communication technology systems through employing knowledge-driven control loops to ensure that the systems operate within a defined behavioral envelope that conforms to business goals. However, as autonomic system implementations become more flexible and as the business environments within which they operate become more dynam... View full abstract»

    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment in which it operates. We present initial work on using models of physical processes to generate models for autonomic control, and speculate that these can be used to improve t... View full abstract»
