Abstract: This paper gives an insight on the services that are necessary for a system capable of supporting one practical application of the concept of Ubiquitous Computing. The applied scenario is an academic campus and it is pretended that students may access typical computer applications ubiquitously, i. e., anywhere and using any computer. We call it Universal Access to Applications. In this scenario, each user may access and use an arbitrary, and heterogeneous, set of applications on any computer and anywhere in the campus. A survey on technologic solutions for enabling the access to non-native applications is firstly summarized. Then we proceed with the design of such distributed system using MoNet methodology. Four steps are covered together with their main contributions: requirements capturing, design of a Logical Model, elaboration of a Functional Model, and finally, setting of a Reference Model for implementation. The proof-of-concept platform, developed on basis of the designed syste m, proved the concept. Finally, conclusions about the work done and the concept future applications are considered. (More)
