Abstract

A new field in distributed computing, called Ambient Intelligence, has emerged as a consequence of the increasing availability of wireless devices and the mobile networks they induce. Developing software for mobile networks is extremely hard in conventional programming languages because the network is dynamically demarcated. This leads us to postulate a suite of characteristics of future Ambient-Oriented Programming languages. A simple reflective programming language, called AmbientTalk, that meets the characteristics is presented. It is validated by implementing a collection of high level language features that are used in the implementation of an ambient messenger application.
