Adaptive middleware is increasingly used to give applications the ability to adapt to changes such as software evolution, fault tolerance, autonomic behavior, or mobility. Event-based systems offer a platform for developing adaptive middleware through loosely coupled architectures, which raises the possibility of orthogonally extending applications to communicate through events. An architecture based on a dynamic aspect-oriented programming (AOP) platform and an event system enables applications to implement new functionality at runtime.
