Design and implementation of a framework for context aware mobile services
Applications designed for mobile platforms are traditionally hampered by the limita¬tions of the client devices, in particular limited user interface and the change of user environment due to mobility. Incorporating location of the device, and more generally the whole context of the user and device in the computation has clear advantages. A framework for context aware mobile services (FCAMS) targeted for cellular data net¬work is proposed. We provide a detailed architecture of the framework. The design provides a generic way to add context to the mobile applications. An implementation of the framework along with an example service, ATM Finder is done. Functional analysis of the implementation is performed.
