Abstract—Autonomic computing is gradually becoming accepted as a viable approach to achieving self-management in systems and networks, with the goal of lessening the impact of the complexity crisis on the computing industry. The authors propose the integration of high level selforganisation features into an Application Directed Adaptive Framework (ADAF), an autonomic-oriented software development process, which when used during the development of software applications, enables those applications to exhibit autonomic behaviour. This paper discusses the infrastructure of the ADAF and demonstrates two self-managing capabilities that come about in a software application as a result of applying the ADAF, namely selfmonitoring and self-diagnosis.

Index Terms—autonomic computing, autonomic-oriented software development process, self-organising features, selfmonitoring, self-diagnosis
