Runtime Architecture Management

Student: Matthew Wastrodowski, UCI/ISR

Collaborator: John Georgas, UCI/ISR

Advisor: André van der Hoek, UCI/ISR

Abstract: Software engineering demands continuity between the structural implementation of an architecture and the running architecture itself. Without this close relationship, it is difficult to equate the implementation and the actual running product. It becomes arduous to make changes to artifacts in order to affect the running application in precise ways. The ability to enact runtime changes is crucial to overcoming this difficulty. Incremental changes to the structure can be immediately reflected in the running system. In order to manage these runtime changes, the user should be able to transition between different configurations of running systems.

Matthew Wastrodowski is a third year ICS undergraduate student, completing honors research in Software Engineering at ISR.
