Full text is not currently available for this publication.


We argue that principles from the design of dependable software, especially separation of concerns and the use of formality, can be applied beneficially in the construction of self-managing systems. We illustrate this approach by presenting an experimental architecture for dynamic and resilient computer-based systems which utilises component metadata to govern reconfigurations in accordance with formally stated policies. Initial experiments with the architecture are described. We argue that the architecture describes a self-organising system and, further, provides a basis for self-managing systems.
