An increasingly important requirement for software-based systems is the ability to adapt themselves at run time to handle such things as resource variability, changing user needs, and system faults. In the past, systems that supported self-management were rare, confined mostly to domains like telecommunications switches or deep space control software, where taking a system down for upgrades was not an option, and where human intervention was not always feasible. However, today more and more systems have this requirement, including e-commerce systems and mobile embedded systems.
