Modern applications are increasingly dynamic and heterogeneous and their lifecycle is more and more governed by autonomic managers that are also getting more and more complex. The purpose of this paper is to present a service-oriented framework that facilitates the development and management of dynamically extensible autonomic managers. More precisely, we(More)
Pervasive applications are encountered in a number of settings , including smart houses, intelligent buildings or connected plants. Service-Oriented Computing is today the technology of choice for implementing and exposing resources in such environments. The selection of appropriate services at the right moment in order to compose meaningful applications is(More)
In-production performance monitoring is required for dynamic and modular systems open to third-party applications such as the OSGi-based smart home box that home actors envision today. Existing approaches are not suitable for inproduction monitoring as they generally induce a strong persistent overhead. This paper proposes a progressive and localized(More)
The ambitious goals of autonomic management require complex, adaptable processing capabilities that prove extremely difficult to conceive and implement. This paper proposes a solution for the opportunistic integration of specialised autonomic management resources, so as to obtain complex, adaptable management strategies. The paper introduces an architecture(More)
Late-binding and substitutability offered by the service-oriented approach improve adaptability but increase the need for fast and efficient algorithms to select services. In this paper, we proposed to use the Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) approach as a classification tool to select services at runtime, according to user specifications. We propose to(More)
The ability to react quickly to unpredictable changes in the environment is a key requirement in pervasive computing. This paper presents fANFARE, a framework for the autonomic management of service-oriented applications in pervasive environments. Specifically, it focuses on the configuration and optimization of pervasive applications deployed on OSGi(More)
In this paper, we propose an architecture for building adaptable, extensible and introspectable autonomic managers. In that purpose, we introduce the concept of administration tasks: very specialized components that are opportunistically assembled into autonomic control loops. We discussed particularly the possibility of monitoring and modifying the(More)
In most Service-Oriented frameworks service selection is based on provider-centric information despite well-known shortcomings (trustworthiness, incompleteness, subjectivity). We propose to allow consumers and third-party modules to extend information about providers and their services directly into the service registry. The knowledge is organized and(More)
