An architecture for ubiquitous applications


This paper proposes a framework intended to help developers to create ubiquitous applications. We argue that context is a key concept in ubiquitous computing and that, by nature, a ubiquitous application is distributed and needs to be easily deployable. Thus we propose an easy way to build applications made of numerous modules spread in the environment and interconnected. This network of modules forms a permanently running system. The control (installation, update, etc.) of such a module is obtained by a simple, possibly remote, command and without requiring to stop the whole system. We ourselves used this architecture to create a ubiquitous application, which we present here as an illustration.
