Dynamic AOP has been identified as a useful technique to implement an auto-adaptive framework. To supplement this policies based upon Event-Condition-Action rules are used to specify when adaptations should be applied to the underlying system. However, for use in auto-adaptive systems it is advantageous
if these policies allow certain relationship information to be specified to ensure the system never encounters undesirable interactions and adaptations are applied in a correct manner. This paper highlights the need for these relationships by giving a series of examples followed by a proposed solution to these problems.
