Gestion de l'adaptabilité dans les applications réparties

Abstract : Althrough component models have greatly simplified the development of distributed applications, adaptating these applications to their execution contexts is still challenging. Such adaptations are required to take into account the specificities of execution environments as well as the changes that may occur in these environments at execution time (e.g., overloads, failures). Addressing this kind of adaptability has been the main focus of my research works. During the Olan project, I first considered how component models could be used to obtain application adaptability at deployment time. I then considered the challenge of dynamic adaptability that reconfigures applications at runtime with minimal downtime. This work matured during the Jade project, whose primary objective was to study the use of a reflective component model along with autonomic control loops to manage application adaptation. In this document, I share some insights on adaptability and argue about the benefits of combining reflective models with autonomic behaviors. I will also introduce the research perspectives that I intend to address in the coming years.
