Runtime Behavior Monitoring and Self-Adaptation in Service-Oriented Systems
Mixed service-oriented systems composed of human actors and software services build up complex interaction networks. Without any coordination, such systems may exhibit undesirable properties due to unexpected behavior. Also, communications and interactions in such networks are not preplanned by top-down composition models. Consequently, the management of service-oriented applications is difficult due to changing interaction and behavior patterns that possibly contradict and result in faults from varying conditions and misbehavior in the network. In this paper the authors present a self-adaptation approach that regulates local interactions to maintain desired system functionality.
