Reconfigurable software systems are usually responsible for realizing many kinds of client requests. As the complexity of such systems architecture, using mathematical analysis is difficult to directly analyze its availability. Therefore, this paper describes a simulation method to analysis the availability of reconfigurable software systems. Firstly, based on structural features of the reconfigurable software systems, build the system model, then simulate running states of software systems, and build the dynamic process of systems. Finally, monitor state variables in the simulation to analyze system availability.
