This paper describes an approach to the design of a wrapper for self-managing COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) components. Each wrapper for COTS components encapsulates the properties of self-management detection, reconfiguration, and repair. A COTS component deals with the application perspectives, whereas the wrapper handles the self-management perspectives, separately from the application perspectives. Each wrapper for self-managing COTS components is structured into several objects in support of detection, reconfiguration, and repair of the anomalous COTS components. The approach suggested in this paper is applied to the distributed elevator system consisting of multiple COTS components.
