Abstract

To reduce the down-time of software systems and maximise the set of available services during reconfiguration, we propose exploiting component protocol information. This is achieved by knowing the state of a running system and determining the component dependencies for the time interval from receiving a reconfiguration request until reconfiguration completion. For this forecast we use the architectural descriptions that specify static dependencies, as well as component protocol information. By considering only component interactions for the time interval of reconfiguration we can exclude past and future dependencies from our runtime dependency graphs. We show that such change-request-specific runtime dependency graphs may be considerably smaller than the corresponding static architecture based dependency graphs; this way, we are speeding up runtime reconfiguration of component-based systems while maximising the set of available services.
