Event-driven, embedded applications that embody the composition of many disparate components are emerging as an important class of pervasive applications. For such applications, realizing solutions often requires a breadth of expertise. Consequently, managing the solution life cycle can be a very complex, time-intensive process. In this paper, we present a framework that eases the complexity of managing the life cycle of event-driven, pervasive solutions. We call this framework Rapid Integrated

Component composition and software reuse are two central concepts of RISE, where solutions are graphically composed from reusable components using a visual editor. We describe the RISE architecture and discuss an initial prototype implementation that leverages open source technologies, such as Eclipse. Additionally, we illustrate the ecacy of RISE with an example solution for RFID supply chain logistics.
