Proceedings of the 2005 workshop on Design and evolution of autonomic application software - DEAS '05
The need for adaptability in software is growing, driven in part by the emergence of pervasive and autonomic computing. In many cases, it is desirable to enhance existing programs with adaptive behavior, enabling them to execute effectively in dynamic environments. In this paper, we propose a general programming model called transparent shaping to enable dynamic adaptation in existing programs. We describe an approach to implementing transparent shaping that combines four key softwaredoi:10.1145/1083063.1083086 fatcat:blws7ighmzhxdgecqjo6ifzjba
