Abstract : Our goal is to provide Internet services on top of "n-tier" architectures. In our context, these architectures are made of five tiers: devices, gateways, mediation, Internet servers and presentation. Apprehending the gateways tier needs the introduction of services applications to answer the requests of the mediation tier and to collect and transform data from the "devices" tier, these data are then used by the "mediation" tier, next they are manipulated by the "Internet server" tier which is in charge of the displaying to the end users. The introduction of such services applications intended to run in services execution environments raises issues related to:
- the development of business-specific services applications [ML07],
- their deployment in services execution environments (this is the focus of this thesis) [CL07a]
- the dynamic management of interactions between services applications and the devices (un)- plugged to the gateways (these devices are exposed as services in the environments) [EBL+08]. Software lifecycle is made of several phases. The main ones are analysis, conception, implementation, test and deployment. The latter is a complex one; it is made of activities and subactivities like installation, activation, deactivation, static and dynamic updates, evolution, dynamism and deinstallation. The introduction and use of the service approach still raises the deployment phase complexity, in particular when the goal is the deployment of services applications on services execution environments. Stakes, here, are:
- to execute deployment activities targeting services applications while respecting each application's architecture (i.e. each application's model),
- to control the deployment state of the services (implementations) realizing these applications,
- to execute deployment activities on services belonging to these applications while acting only the targeted service and avoiding to impact the whole applications. We called this last stake: "closely deployment" or "deployment in the small". It imposes that development units (i.e. constraints service-oriented components) used for developing applications and deployment units (i.e. services implementations) used for realizing applications have the same (fine) grain. This thesis proposes a software prototype, called DMSA (for Deployment Manager for Services Applications), automating the deployment of services applications on services execution environments while following a model-driven approach. Using a model-driven approach is an answer for the constant rise in abstraction of the deployment phase and of its entry point. The full decoupling between model level and "reality" level has been chosen in order to reuse services implementations between services models. This document clarifies our approach, the services applications meta-model, the services applications deployment definition, the DMSA's software architecture and our propositions. These latter target deployment of several applications models on several services execution environments, "transactional" deployment, our embedded context apprehension and execution of deployment activities ordered lists on services execution environments.
