Abstract

The recent evolution of network connectivity from wired connection to wireless to mobile access together with their crossing has engendered their widespread use with new network-computing challenges. More precisely, network infrastructures are not only continuously growing, but their usage is also changing and they are now considered to be the foundation of other new technologies. A related research area concerns ubiquitous and pervasive computing systems and their applications. The design and development of ubiquitous and pervasive applications require new operational models that will permit an efficient use of resources and services, and a reduction of the need for the administration effort typical in client-server networks (Gaber, 2000, 2006).
