Storz, Oliver and Friday, Adrian and Davies, Nigel (2004) Supporting Ordering and Consistency in a Distributed Event Heap for Ubiquitous Computing. In: Second Workshop on System Support for Ubiquitous Computing Workshop (Ubisys 2004), 2004-09-072004-09-10, Nottingham, England.
The Stanford Event Heap has been shown to provide appropriate support for constructing interactive workspace applications. Given this success it is natural to consider the Event Heap as a platform to support other classes of Ubiquitous Computing applications. In this paper we argue that the distributed, spontaneous nature of these applications places additional demands on the Event Heap that require extensions to both the engineering and API. Suitable extensions are described and their use to support a typical Ubicomp application is discussed.
