Developing extensible, robust, and efficient distributed systems is a complex task. To help alleviate this complexity, we have developed the ADAPTIVE Service eXecutive (ASX) framework. ASX is an object-oriented framework composed of automated tools and reusable components. These tools and components help to simplify the development, configuration, and reconfiguration of applications in a distributed environment. Using the ASX framework, the services in the applications may be updated and

It also describes how the ASX framework has been used to develop a highly modular, reusable, and dynamically reconfigurable family of distributed system management applications.
