Frameworks that support the implementation and execution of service
compositions are a fundamental component of middleware infrastructures
that support the design of adaptive systems. This paper discusses the
requirements imposed by adaptive middleware on service composition
frameworks, and discusses how they have been addressed by previous
work. As a result, it describes the design of a novel
adaptation-friendly service composition framework that takes into
consideration the requirements at three different levels: service
programming model level, adaptation-friendly services level, and
kernel mechanisms level.
