Palpable Assemblies: Dynamic Service Composition for Ubiquitous Computing
An important characteristic of ubiquitous computing is that the computational services in our environment are envisioned to be far more interconnectable than today. This means it should be possible to combine them to suit the purpose at hand at any given time. However, given a particular combination of services, there are numerable combined behaviours that could be meaningful. Furthermore, ubiquitous computing is often characterized by dynamically changing, heterogeneous combinations of services. It is therefore necessary to be able to specify the desired behavior and to be able to switch dynamically and easily between several such behaviours. Assemblies, as a concept in ubiquitous computing, has been suggested as a mechanism to represent a set of services and their behavior. After summarising the use-inspired notion of an assembly, this paper (1) clarifies the concept from a software engineering perspective, arguing that an assembly is both an architectural connector and a component...
