Architecture-based Self-adapting Systems

Russ and Bett discuss a paper on self adapting software systems, "Rainbow: Architecture Based Self-Adaptation with Reusable Infrastructure".  Here is a summary of the paper: "The Rainbow framework uses software architectures and a reusable infrastructure to support self-adaptation of software systems." The use of external adaptation mechanisms allows the explicit specification of adaptation strategies for multiple system concerns."  The paper was written by: David Garlan, Shang-Wen Cheng, An-Cheng Huang, Bradley Schmerl, Peter Steenkiste of Carnegie Mellon University.
