SHADOWS: A self-healing approach to designing complex software systems

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The Shadows project aims to systematically address the challenge of growing soft ware complexity and its detrimental impact on soft ware manageability, reliability, and productivity. Shadows technologies enable the development of complex soft ware systems of high and durable quality, with lower development and maintenance costs. Th e project introduces a new paradigm for the development of self-healing soft ware systems. The notion of self-healing, as defined and pursued by Shadows, is the capability of a soft ware system to automatically diagnose and heal the root causes of its failures and performance problems, and prevent them from reappearing. Shadows self-healing technologies discover problems and potential problems, analyze them, and then apply modifications to the soft ware system, to its operating parameters, or to its run-time environment, to fix the system or keep it functioning properly.
