STITCH: Middleware for Ubiquitous Applications
Damian Arregui, Christer Fernstrom, Francois Pacull, Gilbert Rondeau, Jutta Willamowski
In this paper we present STITCH, a middleware that facilitates the development of ubiquitous user-centric and
contextaware applications. These systems are built form distributed components which are highly
heterogeneous, covering a large range of hardware configurations, from sensors to computers, and with
software ranging from embedded software with small footprint to larger scale services. We believe it is
essential to provide infrastructure support to express system behaviors across such components. Our
approach relies on an integrated view of distributed events and transactional resource manipulation. The
former is well-suited to loosely couple small devices,while the latter allows for verification of distributed
conditions and coordination of actions, STITCH provides a common layer of abstraction allowing application
developers to take advantage of both paradigms.
