The computing and networking capabilities of today's wireless mobile devices allow for seamlessly-networked, ubiquitous services, which may be dynamically composed at run-time to accomplish complex tasks. This vision, however, remains challenged by the inherent mobility of such devices, which makes services highly volatile. These issues call for a service-oriented middleware that should (i) deal with the run-time growth of the application in terms of involved services (flexibility), (ii)

This chapter discusses the design and implementation of ubiREST, a service-oriented middleware that leverages REST principles to effectively enable the ubiquitous networking of Services. ubiREST specifically defines a layered communication middleware supporting RESTful Services while exploiting nowadays ubiquitous connectivity.
