Today, software architecture has a vital role in achieving quality goals for large scale distributed software systems which is made up of components and connectors. Especially, software development mainly consists of composing re-usable components. The main issue in this approach resides in the difficulty to make these heterogeneous components communicate with each other smoothly, especially in mobile and pervasive computing area. These components can be replaced, dropped or added easily using

In this work, we propose and validate a universal connector framework that allows, through a web service interface using cloud technologies, diverse software components and mobile devices communicate with each other. For example, components and devices in pervasive systems can exchange context information, and analyze them to deduce new rules. As a proof of concept, we apply this connector in a mobile messenger context and shows our results.
