Abstract

We advocate Self-Explanation as the foundation for the Self-* properties. Arguing that for system component to have such properties the underlining foundation is a awareness of them selfs and their environment. In the research area of adaptive software, self-* properties have shifted into focus pushing ever more design decisions to a applications runtime. Thus fostering new paradigms for system development like intelligent agents. This work surveys the state of the art methods of self-explanation in software systems and distills a definition of self-explanation.
