The growing complexity of Web service platforms and their dynamically varying workloads make manually managing their performance a tough and time consuming task. Autonomic computing systems that are self-configuring and self-managing have emerged as a promising approach to dealing with this increasing complexity. This paper proposes a framework for an Autonomic Web Services Environment (AWSE) constructed using a collaborative framework of Autonomic Managers that leverage each component in the AWSE with self-managing capabilities. The authors present a unique approach to designing the Autonomic Managers for the AWSE framework by combining reflective programming techniques with extended database functionality. The validity of the approach is illustrated by a number of experiments performed using prototype implementations of the autonomic managers.
