Abstract

and more complicated. In order to tackle the difficulty of achieving adaptive and distributed deployment, a deployment-oriented development process is presented in this paper. While existing deployment methodologies are lack of variability concern, the approach takes advantage of a variability model in order to define context variability at design time. With the usage of a transformation utility and a deployment system, deployment constraints that identified by software architects can be enforced from design time to deployment time. It facilitates the deployment tasks for software architects by automating the interpretation between abstract definitions and operation detail. The approach will be presented with a use case scenario and some model example in order to point out the research orientation and position.
