Experience using Processes for Pervasive Applications

Stephan Urbanski , Marcus Handte , Gregor Schiele and Kurt Rothermel


Pervasive Computing envisions seamless computing support for users while performing their everyday tasks. Many of these tasks are hard to capture by the notion of a single application as their requirements on computing support vary over time. To ease the development of applications for such tasks, we have designed an application model for process-oriented pervasive applications, called Sentient Processes, and a supporting middleware system implementing the flow control for processes. In this paper, we show the capabilities of the Sentient Process model to capture everyday user tasks by the example of a process supporting a student in managing his classes during a term.
