From Data Center Resource Allocation to Control Theory and Back
Found in: Cloud Computing, IEEE International Conference on
By Xavier Dutreilh, Aurélien Moreau, Jacques Malenfant, Nicolas Rivierre, Isis Truck
Issue Date:July 2010
pp. 410-417
Continuously adjusting the horizontal scaling of applications hosted by data centers appears as a good candidate to automatic control approaches allocating resources in closed-loop given their current workload. Despite several attempts, real applications o...
QoS-based Late-Binding of Service Invocations in Adaptive Business Processes
Found in: Web Services, IEEE International Conference on
By Pierre Châtel, Jacques Malenfant, Isis Truck
Issue Date:July 2010
pp. 227-234
Computing has reached the time of distributed applications everywhere. Service-oriented architectures are more and more used to organize such complex and highly dynamic applications into business processes calling services discovered in registries at load-...
Data Flow Repair in Web Service Orchestration at Runtime
Found in: Internet and Web Applications and Services, International Conference on
By Aurélien Moreau, Jacques Malenfant, Michel Dao
Issue Date:May 2009
pp. 43-48
Business process modeling languages, such as BPMN, offer an abstract view to Web service composition, where business functionalities are decomposed into activities connected through high level control and possibly data flows.
WS-Objects: First-Class Objects as Web Service Parameters
Found in: Internet and Web Applications and Services, International Conference on
By Olena Rogovchenko, Jacques Malenfant
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 437-444
Web Services lack the possibility to exchange first-class objects as parameters and results. In current SOA practices, one has to give up years of experience in object-oriented programming, and return to procedural programming, passing as parameters XML da...
A Predictive Method for Providing Fault Tolerance in Multi-agent Systems
Found in: Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on
By Alessandro de Luna Almeida, Samir Aknine, Jean-Pierre Briot, Jacques Malenfant
Issue Date:December 2006
pp. 226-232
The growing importance of multi-agent applications and the need for a higher quality of service in these systems justify the increasing interest in fault-tolerant multi-agent systems. In this article, we propose an original method for providing dependabili...
Towards a methodology for explicit composition of metaobjects
Found in: Proceedings of the tenth annual conference on Object-oriented programming systems, languages, and applications (OOPSLA '95)
By Jacques Malenfant, Philippe Mulet, Pierre Cointe
Issue Date:October 1995
pp. 99-107
Reflective programming languages are those where users' programs are allowed to customize in an organized way the behavior of the language to their own needs. For ten years now, most of the work on reflection revolved around the definition and the implemen...
Prototype-based languages: from a new taxonomy to constructive proposals and their validation
Found in: conference proceedings on Object-oriented programming systems, languages, and applications (OOPSLA '92)
By Christophe Dony, Jacques Malenfant, Pierre Cointe
Issue Date:October 1992
pp. 99-107
The paper presents a discussion and a specification of an exception handling system dedicated to object-oriented programming. We show how a full object-oriented representation of exceptions and of protocols to handle them, using meta-classes, makes the sys...
