Businesses have already started to exploit potential uses of cloud computing as a new paradigm for promoting their services. Although the general concepts they practically focus on are: viability, survivability, adaptability, etc., however, on the ground, there is still a lack for forming mechanisms to sustain viability with adaptation of new requirements in cloud-based applications. This has inspired a pressing need to adopt new methodologies and abstract models which support system acquisition for self-adaptation, thus guaranteeing autonomic cloud application behavior. This paper relies over state-of-the-art Neptune framework as runtime adaptive software development environment supported with intention-oriented modeling language in the representation and adaptation of goal based model artifacts and their intrinsic properties requirements.
