Abstract:Context Discovery Adapter or CDA as we call it is designed and implemented as a proof of concept to demonstrate ability to discover and exchange context-specic information across disparate networks. The implementation adopts Mobile Service Platform (MSP) and Ahoy, two context management frameworks with greatly dierent properties. MSP is a JINI-based middleware capable of supporting connectivity across cellular and xed networks. Ahoy on the other hand is a lightweight context discovery framework designed for mobile ad-hoc networks and built with the help of Bloom lters. The project demonstrates that heavyweight context interchange frameworks like MSP and lightweight frameworks similar to Ahoy with limited context sensitivity can establish mutual and transparent context exchange. CDA proves not only a possibility for more pervasive context-aware applications, but also provides a platform for further research.
