Reactive programming has recently gained popularity as a paradigm that is well-suited for developing event-driven and interactive applications. It facilitates the development of such applications by providing abstractions to express time-varying values and automatically managing dependencies between such values. A number of approaches have been recently(More)
Mobile social networking applications enable end-users to interact <i>on the move</i>. Current applications model user groups as simple lists which have to be manually <i>enumerated</i>. This representation is both unsuitable and inefficient for group interactions: due to the openness and the mobility to which these applications are exposed, the contents of(More)
Context-aware applications provide end-users with enhanced experiences by continuously sensing their environment and adapting their behaviour to match the current context of use. However, developing true context-aware applications remains notoriously difficult due to the unpredictable nature of context changes. A context change may occur at any moment(More)
The rise of mobile computing platforms has given rise to a new class of applications: mobile applications that interact with peer applications running on neighbouring phones. Developing such applications is challenging because of problems inherent to concurrent and distributed programming , and because of problems inherent to mobile networks, such as the(More)
Middleware for mashups is currently not able to compose the services residing in a nomadic network. Its transient connections and connection volatility result in a highly dynamic environment where services can appear and disappear at any point in time. The consequence is that these services must be discovered at runtime in an ad hoc fashion and must execute(More)
Because of the dynamic nature of mobile ad hoc networks and the applications running on top of them, these applications have to be conceived as event-driven architectures. Such architectures are hard to program because coordination between concurrent and distributed mobile components has to be expressed by means of event handlers or callbacks. Applications(More)
Using state of the art tools, context-aware applications are notified of relevant changes in their environment through event handlers which are triggered by dedicated middleware. The events signalled by the middleware should percolate through the entire application, requiring a carefully crafted network of observers combined with complex synchronization(More)
In MANET applications, a common pattern is to maintain and query time-varying collections of remote objects. Traditional approaches require programmers to manually track the connectivity state of these remote objects and adding or removing them from local collections on a per-object basis. Queries over these collections have to be manually recomputed(More)
