Retrofitting Autonomic Capabilities onto Legacy Systems

Janak Parekh, Gail Kaiser, Philip Gross, Giuseppe Valetto
2006 Cluster Computing  
Our goal is to retrofit autonomic computing onto such systems, externally, without any need to understand, modify or even recompile the target system's code.  ...  Most results to date, however, suggest ways to architect new software designed from the ground up as autonomic systems, whereas in the real world organizations continue to use stovepipe legacy systems  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank the other members of the Programming Systems Lab for their contributions to this effort; we would particularly like to thank Jinghua Yan for his theoretical work  ...

Using process technology to control and coordinate software adaptation

G. Valetto, G. Kaiser
2003 25th International Conference on Software Engineering, 2003. Proceedings.  
These mechanisms require lower-level actuators or effectors somehow attached to the target system, so we briefly sketch one such facility (elaborated elsewhere).  ...  This feedback-loop infrastructure is primarily targeted to pre-existing systems and thus operates outside the application itself without making assumptions about the target system's internal communication  ...  This approach enables retrofitting with the desired reconfiguration, self-healing, and selfmanagement capabilities also legacy systems and systems built by composition with third-party components.  ...
