    This work is an initiative attempt toward component-based software engineering in ubiquitous computing systems. Software components cooperate in a distributed manner to meet a demand, and adapt their software bindings during run-time depending on the context information. There are two main research topics investigated in this study. The first topic is how to build an architecture, consisting of software components, that supports adaptation and self-configuration. We explain why that component is needed, what the requirements are and how it will be designed. Besides component-based design, we build our architecture on top of Publish/Subscribe (P/S) model. We like to reuse the TinyOS components and as a second topic, we investigate the problems that will be experienced when converting these components to our P/S oriented environment. Our experiences during this research pointed out that; buffer exchange and flexible interface name representation are not suitable for ubiquitous systems.
