Context-awareness is the premise of self-management applications. In this paper, a Middleware for Adaptive Coordination (MAC) architecture is proposed. It supports the cycle from modeling and reasoning about the context knowledge to planned architecture-based self-management actions. One of the key elements of our approach is the explicit modeling of context by Web Ontology Language based on which the logic reasoning is performed. Besides, an internal object-oriented architectural self-management mechanism is proposed. A prototype of MAC is also given followed by a case study with quantitative evaluations.
