Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3083)


In this paper we present a framework defining the architecture of systems providing software components with means to contractualise their resource access conditions with their deployment environment dynamically. We also present the Jamus platform, a prototype we have developed in order to show how our framework can be used to support the dynamic definition and enforcement of contracts binding components and their deployment environment regarding resource access conditions.
