Abstract


Expectations of the users from context-aware systems is to help them in their dynamic situations. Systems follow the context of the user either by hardware or software they use in their surroundings directly or indirectly. Hardware devices are already at common when activity context is the major concern. However, after the implementation of „software as a service‟ the software can also be utilised; whenever we are dealing with software and exchange the data through SOAP messages (the less explored part of the technology which has a lot to offer). This paper presents a framework for the possibilities to exploit that data with number of ways to sense all the flavours of the context with an emphasize on activity context. If the activity context is gathered and utilised in a true sense, the promise of context-aware systems would be near to promising. This further states all the steps of the architecture starting from capturing data to reasoning and querying results of the structured knowledge in the web services environment for a scenario.
