Towards Structural Decomposition of Reflection with Mirrors

Abstract : Mirrors are meta-level entities introduced to decouple reflection from the base-level system. Current mirror-based systems focus on functional decomposition of reflection. In this paper we advocate that mirrors should also address structural decomposition. Mirrors should not only be the entry points of reflective behavior but also be the storage entities of meta-information. This decomposition can help resolve issues in terms of resource constraints (e.g. embedded systems and robotics) or security. Indeed, structural decomposition enables discarding meta-information.
