Context-aware services need to acquire context information
from heterogeneous context sources. The diversity of
service requirements posts challenges on context provisioning
systems as well as their programming models.
This paper proposes COPAL (COntext Provisioning for ALl)
- an adaptive approach to context provisioning. COPAL is
at first a runtime middleware, which provides loose-coupling
between context and its processing. The component architecture
of COPAL ensures that new context processing functions can
be added dynamically. A set of context processing patterns are
proposed to customize context attributes and compose context
provisioning schemes. The COPAL components and models are
reflected in a Domain Specific Language (DSL), which can
further reduce the development efforts of context provisioning
using automatic code generation. A motivating scenario is used
throughout the paper to illustrate COPAL approach.
