The development of self-adaptive software (SaS) has specific characteristics compared to traditional one, since it allows that changes to be incorporated at runtime. Automated processes have been used as a feasible solution to conduct the software adap¬tation at runtime. In parallel, reference model has been used to aggregate knowledge and architectural artifacts, since capture the systems essence of spe¬cific domains. However, there is currently no reference model based on reflection for the development of SaS. Thus, the main contribution of this paper is to present a reference model based on reflection for development of SaS that have a need to adapt at runtime. To present the applicability of this model, a case study was conducted and good perspective to efficiently con¬tribute to the area of SaS has been obtained.
