Abstract

The synergy of ubiquitous computing and service-oriented technologies may lead to efficient, pervasive and dependable solutions in the challenging context of emergency management. Recently, novel paradigms have been proposed, most of them envisioning arbitrary pairs of peer application entities communicating and providing services directly with each other and to users. In order to enforce these paradigms even to systems which include devices with limited processing and storage resources, lightweight middleware components are required. We illustrate how this is provided by JXTA-SOAP, a portable software component supporting peer-to-peer sharing of Web Services, and we show how it can be used to implement disaster response software applications.
