Abstract

Abstract. In this paper, we introduce a component-based software architecture that facilitates reconfigurability and state migration in a semantically correct manner for fault tolerant systems. The main focus and contribution of the paper is on the ontology framework that is based on object orientation techniques for coherent reconfiguration of software components in the events of faults at runtime, preserving state consistency and also facilitating state ontology evolution. Our proposed approach is realised in C++, which is integrated in the lightweight middleware MIREA.
