Context-aware applications running in the intelligent space are taken into account and their execution in the service oriented environment is considered. It has been presented where and how SOA services can be utilized during their execution: to analyze current context of the application and to support execution of strictly determined actions suitable for that context. The proposed mechanism of context-aware service selection and invocation is based on two items: ontology description of the context and a model of available services. It was shown that proposed solution is less efficient but more flexible than direct context analysis.
