Ubiquitous computing scenarios call for middleware support solutions able to cope with changes in environment conditions and user requirements. Changes greatly impact on the application logic the middleware is able to carry out (content/service adaptation, multichannel content delivery, mobility management, and so on), but also on the non-functional support logic middleware exploits to enforce the application logic itself (e.g., naming, persistence, communication infrastructures). In this work, the authors propose a novel middleware for ubiquitous computing scenarios that is able to reconfigure both application and non-functional features, in order to cope with increasingly complex and heterogeneous ubiquitous and pervasive landscapes.
