Home SOA - Facing Protocol Heterogeneity in Pervasive Application
Numerous innovative applications are envisioned in the home area network today, mixing current or nearly marketable applications: multimedia content sharing, home comfort, home surveillance, people care. The home network becomes a ground for pervasive computing design. Its openness to dynamic distributed and heterogeneous devices emphasizes the pervasive challenges in home application design. This paper presents an open architecture for home service development and compare it to related work. Distribution and protocol heterogeneity are managed by service-oriented drivers leveraging the "Service platform" concept while network dynamicity is locally reified on the platform.
