Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To continuous workings of computer, we suggest a mechanism of exchanging a part of program, while the program is executed. First, we show the conditions to exchange a part of program. Second, we describe our mechanism of exchanging a part of program and provide a thread control method to reduce a bad effect for services. Third, we formulate an average time of exchanging a part of program, then estimate elapsed times of exchanging an application program part in some cases. Finally, we implement trial model for example, and estimate that. The results show this mechanism makes possible to maintain software with running computer service, and the influence to service provide is small.
