Special Session on Model-driven Software Adaptation - MODA 2013


Antonio Brogi
Università di Pisa

Software adaptation is one of the crucial issues in system integration. Software adaptation is needed in a number of situations, ranging from the need of overcoming various types of mismatches across applications developed by different parties, of customising existing services to different types of clients, or of adapting legacy systems to meet new business demands. Since the practice of manual software adaptation is both expensive and error-prone, various methodologies have been developed in recent years to lift software adaptation from hand-crafting to an engineered activity.
