Ubiquitous computing represents the next wave of distributed computing, which focus on integrating computers with various wearable, mobile, and sensor devices, thus making computing and communication essentially transparent to the users. This type of environments mainly consists of myriad of embedded computing nodes interacting in transparent fashion to provide different services to the users. In addition to being resource-constrained, applications in these environments are context-sensitive and often operate in mobile ad hoc networks. Although different types of context-sensitive applications with diverse focus have been developed for ubiquitous computing environments, no general methods are available for developing application software for the above environments. In this paper, the development of context-sensitive distributed software for ubiquitous computing environments is presented
