Abstract

Context information constitutes an essential aspect of service development and provision in mobile computing in the attempt to provide users with personalized services. The problem of handling context in these environments, as well as the development of context-aware services, have become quite challenging research tasks in the last years. In this paper, the ongoing work towards context handling of web services is presented along with a model-driven methodology for context-aware service engineering for web applications built on web services. The solution focuses on decoupling the context management mechanism from the core service logic in all development stages.
