Abstract

There is a high interest on service discovery techniques, which minimize the cost of detecting services and provide users with convenience. For more dynamic and useful service discovery, middleware for context-aware service discovery is required. This paper proposes an intelligent middleware architecture for context-aware service discovery that is based on JADE, which is a FIPA-compliant agent platform. The proposed middleware provides not only service scalability among heterogeneous domains, but also modules processing context information. When a service is detected, context information relating to the user and environment is used. As a policy-based system, the proposed middleware also use predefined policy. In other words, user preference can be considered. Near the conclusion of this paper, we discuss future works.
