Abstract

Described herein is at least one implementation employing multiple self-describing software artifacts persisted on one or more computer-storage media of a software-based computer. In this implementation, each artifact is representative of at least part of the software components (e.g., load modules, processes, applications, and operating system components) of the computing system and each artifact is described by at least one associated 'manifest,' which include metadata declarative descriptions of the associated artifact.
