Traditional software development is based on the closed-world assumption that the boundary between system and environment is known and unchanging. However, this assumption no longer works within today's unpredictable open-world settings, which demands techniques that let software react to changes by self-organizing its structure and self-adapting its behavior.
Index Terms:
software engineering, open-world software, polymorphism, middleware systems, web services, grid computing, autonomic computing
