Platform-Independent Dynamic Reconfiguration of Distributed Applications

Platform-Independent Dynamic Reconfiguration of Distributed Applications
The aim of dynamic reconfiguration is to allow a system to evolve incrementally from one configuration to another at run-time, without restarting it or taking it offline. In recent years, support for transparent dynamic reconfiguration has been added to middleware platforms, shifting the complexity required to enable dynamic reconfiguration to the supporting infrastructure. These approaches to dynamic reconfiguration are mostly platform-specific and depend on particular implementation approaches suitable for particular platforms. In this paper, we propose an approach to dynamic reconfiguration of distributed applications that is suitable for application implemented on top of different platforms. This approach supports a platformindependent view of an application that profits from reconfiguration transparency. In this view, requirements on the ability to reconfigure components are expressed in act manner. These requirements are then satisfied by platform-specific realizations.
