This paper presents an autonomic Web Service Resource Framework (WSRF) container that enables self-configuration using IBM's autonomic computing (AC) architecture and resolves Quality of Service (QoS) problems through service migration. The migration manager bases its decisions on an overall health status metric (H-metric). The H-metric characterises the health of a service container. A unified AC sensor/effector interface, protocol, and metric summarization allows us to build up a hierarchical WSRF container structure to create a virtualized WSRF container. © 2007 IEEE.
