The ability to adapt to different computing environments or external changes is an important requirement for both stationary and mobile computing. Without this ability, all requirements have to be foreseen, which is often not possible in practice. Classical software engineering approaches often lead to redeployment or even software migration. Therefore loosely coupled software design and a dynamic adaptation model are required. Dynamic aspect-oriented programming (d-AOP) in conjunction with service oriented programming is well suited to face this demand. One well known approach providing a service-oriented component model is the OSGi Service Platform. This paper introduces our approach to combine an OSGi Framework with d-AOP to establish dynamic adaptation of core concerns as well as crosscutting concerns. Seamless integration of current d-AOP frameworks is managed by mapping aspect deployment and undeployment to OSGi bundle lifecycle operations without affecting the deployment model. Unlike former proposals, this approach retains the strict separation of bundles as mandated by OSGi. Copyright 2008 ACM.
