Abstract

In pervasive computing, software applications vanish into the user's environment spreading their functionality to computers integrated into everyday devices. With the current state-of-the-art software tools, these characteristics put a great burden on programmers who have to enable the applications to dynamically partition across multiple devices, and to adapt such partitioning to frequent context changes such as network failures.

This paper explores service partitioning techniques for development of pervasive computing applications. We propose a resilient actor model to structurally add service partitioning property to the pervasive applications. The service partitioning realised using resilient actor model happens at runtime, is user guided and the resulting partitioned application is retractable, and resilient to network failures.
