Abstract:The modification of context information or distillation of other information from context information is called context processing. In existing context processing solutions, this is often performed by the application of rules in a rule engine, running on a centralized server. When working in a distributed environment, this approach is often inefficient, or even unfeasible. Performing rules written for a system as a whole in a distributed environment is often a complex task for the programmers of a system implementation. This project proposes a method to transform a set of rules written for a system as a whole into a set of rules that distribute functionality in a networked environment. Using the network topology, the capabilities of all system parts in the network and a set of translation rules, it is possible to divide a rule into components distributed over the network. This method can be automated, allowing it to be used as a tool in the development and management of a distributed context processing environment. Potentially, this task can even be performed in real time in a dynamically changing network.
