Architecture for Developing Adaptive and Adaptable Collaborative Applications
Many organizations have to carry out their work by groups of people who are geographically distributed. The groups can experiment changes, which demand the development of applications supporting groupwork and allowing the adaptation to different groupwork organization styles and to both individual and collective needs. This paper proposes a SOA-based architecture that provides the suitable structure for the development of collaborative applications that are both adaptive and adaptable. We also present an adaptation process that allows the applications based on the architecture to be adapted to the changes in the groupwork organization and to the necessity of new functionalities.
