Monitoring the correct behaviour of a service-based system is a necessity and a key challenge in Service Oriented Computing. Several efforts have been directed towards the development of approaches dealing with the monitoring activity of service-based systems. However, these approaches are in general not suitable when dealing with modifications in service-based systems. Furthermore, existing monitoring approaches do not take into consideration the context of the users and how this context may affect the monitor activity. Consequently, a holistic monitor approach, capable of dealing with the dynamic nature of service-based systems and of taking into consideration the user context, would be highly desirable.\ud \ud In this thesis we present a monitor adaptation framework capable of dealing with changes in a service-based system and different types of users interacting with it. More specifically, the framework obtains a set of monitor rules, necessary to verify the correct behaviour of a service-based system, for a particular user. Moreover, the monitor rules verifying the behaviour of a service-based system relate to properties of the context types defined for a user.\ud \ud The main contributions of our work include the general characterisation of a user interacting with a service-based system and the generation of suitable monitor rules.The proposed framework can be applied to any service composition without the need of further modifications. Our work complements previous research carried on in the area of web service monitoring. More specifically, our work generates a set of suitable monitor rules - related to the user context - which are deployed in a run-time monitor component. Our framework has been tested and validated in several cases considering different scenarios.
