Abstract

This work describes the architecture proposed by the EU project, which aims at developing software components for the future Internet, in the form of Web Runtime Extensions. It discusses the architecture from a developer’s point of view, presenting an overview of its main advantages, such as context-awareness capabilities and distributed APIs in an intrinsic secure environment. It also shows how these features can in practice prove beneficial to the development of ubiquitous and secure web applications based on standard technologies like HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
