Software systems today are increasingly used in changing environments and expected to adapt with variable adaptation concerns. This requirement demands a systematic approach to efficiently construct system global adaptation behaviour according to the dynamic adaptation requirements. This paper presents Transformer - a framework for adaptation behaviour composition support based on reusable and composable adaptation components. Rather than using one adaptation module for all possible contexts, Transformer constructs system global adaptation behaviour by contextually fusing adaptation plans from multiple adaptation components.
