In-Field Healing of Integration Problems With COTS Components

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Developers frequently integrate complex COTS frameworks and components in software applications. COTS products are often only partially documented and developers may misuse technologies and introduce integration faults, as witnessed by the many entries in fault repositories. Once identified, common integration problems and their fixes are usually documented in forums and fault repositories on the web, but this does not prevent them to occur in the field when COTS products are reused. In this paper, the authors propose a methodology and a self-healing technology that can reduce the occurrence of infield failures caused by common integration problems that are identified and documented by COTS developers.
