RPL: A Policy Language For Dynamic Reconfiguration

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Richard Payne



Component-based systems with the ability to alter their configuration at runtime are becoming increasingly attractive to large organisations. However, for such systems to be trustworthy, the system user must be able to be confident that any dynamic reconfiguration takes place in a predictable manner. We present the foundations for a reconfiguration policy language (RPL), to govern reconfigurations of component-based systems, based on a teleo-reactive (T-R) language. We will provide a structural operational semantic definition for the T-R language and describe how we aim to use this framework to create the policy language.
