Towards Application Suitability for PvC Environments

Andres Flores, Macario Polo

Abstract

Pervasive Computing Environments should support the feeling of continuity on user’s daily tasks. This concept relies on the availability of different resources (in this work that will mean availability of applications). We propose a framework for a component-based integration process, centred on the concept of composing/adapting applications at run-time. Central to the problem is the task of component assessment, at syntactic and semantic levels. Our aim is to apply metadata-based techniques and a process-oriented simulation which resorts to well establlished verification tools.
