With the drastic evolution of wireless technologies, software services can become truly ubiquitous, being not solely accesses but also hosted by wirelessly networked portable gadgets. As a result, legacy applications can be ubiquitous. However the ubiSOAP middleware, which strives to provide ubiquitous networking to services. Specifically, ubiSOAP defines a two-layer architecture which, respectively, contrivances network-agnostic connectivity and WS-oriented communication in ubiquitous networking ambiences. The network-agnostic connectivity layer leverages multiradio networking by means of a special addressing contrivance for networked services, namely MRN@, a QoS-aware network selection mechanism and both unicast and multicast communication dexterities. WS oriented communication contrivances the ubiSOAP communication layer which contrivances two different SOAP transports, namely ubiSOAP point-to-point and ubiSOAP group, which leverage network-agnostic connectivity to enable the ubiquitous networking of WS deployed on various gadgets—e.g., PDAs and smart phones—embedding multiple radio interfaces. The inception of lightweight middleware enables base WSoriented communication archetypes among wireless portable gadgets. DPWS extends WS technology allowing for impeccable integration of gadget-provided services. Hence to achieve ubiquitous networking of services a network agnostic connectivity is enabled.
