Context-Sensitive Resource Discovery


Guanling Chen and David Kotz. Context-Sensitive Resource Discovery. Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom), pages 243–252. IEEE, March 2003. doi:10.1109/PERCOM.2003.1192747. ©Copyright IEEE.


This paper presents the “Solar” system framework that allows resources to advertise context-sensitive names and for applications to make context-sensitive name queries. The heart of our framework is a small specification language that allows composition of “context-processing operators” to calculate the desired context. Resources use the framework to register and applications use the framework to lookup context-sensitive name descriptions. The back-end system executes these operators and constantly updates the context values, adjusting advertised names and informing applications about changes. We report experimental results from a prototype, using a modified version of the Intentional Naming System (INS) as the core directory service.
