The authors present a generic deployment infrastructure for distributed component-based applications. This infrastructure is based on OMG's deployment and configuration specification and model driven architecture paradigm. Even though their approach is experimented for enterprise Java beans model, it can be extended to other specific models. They suggest the use of a classical measurement method in decision making for the proposed generic deployment platform of component-based applications. This method is based on graph theory and k-median algorithm. It allows optimization of the cost of any transaction in component deployment planning.
