Towards an Efficient Usage of UbiSOAP Middleware for Ubiquitous Networks
With the drastic evolution of wireless technologies, software services can become truly ubiquitous, being not solely accesses but also hosted by wirelessly networked portable gadgets. As a result, legacy applications can be ubiquitous. However the ubiSOAP middleware, which strives to provide ubiquitous networking to services. Specifically, ubiSOAP defines a two-layer architecture which, respectively, contrivances network-agnostic connectivity and WS-oriented communication in ubiquitous networking ambiences. The network-agnostic connectivity layer leverages multi-radio networking by means of a special addressing contrivance for networked services, namely MRN@, a QoS-aware network selection mechanism and both unicast and multicast communication dexterities.
