A Uniform Programming Abstraction for Effecting Autonomic Adaptations onto Software Systems

Valetto, Giuseppe; Kaiser, Gail E.; Phung, Dan

Most general-purpose work towards autonomic or self-managing systems has emphasized the front end of the feedback control loop, with some also concerned with controlling the back end enactment of runtime adaptations -- but usually employing an effector technology peculiar to one type of target system. While completely generic "one size fits all" effector technologies seem implausible, we propose a general purpose programming model and interaction layer that abstracts away from the peculiarities of target specific effectors,enabling a uniform approach to controlling and coordinating the low-level execution of reconfigurations, repairs,micro-reboots, etc.
