Distributed applications are notoriously difficult to develop and manage due to their inherent dynamics, and heterogeneity of their implementation, topology, deployment and network requirements. Middleware technology has come to the rescue be easing and facilitating the development and interoperation of distributed applications. Until recently, however, little attention has focused on combining assembly, instrumentation and control concepts in conjunction with middleware technologies to understand dynamic behaviour and assist with the runtime management of distributed applications. This paper describes such a combination through a service-orientated framework that provides assembly, instrumentation and control services together with self-describing agents.
