The emergence of pervasive wide-area distributed computing environments, such as pervasive information systems and computational Grids, has enabled new generations of applications that are based on seamless access, aggregation, and interaction. However, the inherent complexity, heterogeneity, and dynamism of these systems require a change in how the applications are developed and managed. In this chapter we describe Accord, a programming system that extends existing programming models/systems to support the development of autonomic self-managing applications. Accord enables the development of autonomic elements and the formulation of autonomic applications as the dynamic composition of autonomic elements. The design and evaluations of prototype implementations of Accord are presented.
