This Web site comes with our book entitled “Autonomic Computing: Principles, design and implementation”.

It defines a set of exercises motivating in a progressive way the introduction of self-management in pervasive applications. It also provides a development environment based on the iPOJO component model and the iCasa simulator allowing an immediate and concrete feedback.

We hope this web environment will grow with the book, learning from the feedback that we receive from practitioners and students alike.
