Context-oriented programming (cop) directly addresses context variability by providing dedicated language concepts: layers, units of modularity store context-dependent behavior. During runtime, layers can be applied dynamically depending on the current context of the program. Various activation means for layers have been proposed. Most of them require developers to model context switches explicitly. In contrast, implicit layer activation (ila) allows developers to bind the activation status of… CONTINUE READING
