    Abstract

    Context-aware applications use and manipulate context information to detect high-level situations, which are used to adapt application behavior. This paper discusses the specification of situations in context-aware applications and introduces a rule-based approach to detect situations. Situations are specified using a combination of UML class diagrams and OCL constraints. We support a wide range of situations, which can be composed of more elementary kinds of context. We discuss how to cope with distribution and to exploit it beneficially for context manipulation and situation detection. We employ a generic rule-based platform (DJess) to support the derivation of situations in a distributed fashion.
