Abstract: This paper presents our approach for service provisioning in pervasive computing environments. The presented approach is based on the usage of context-aware features and transactions during the discovery and the deployment of composite services. Context ensures that the best service offers are selected to participate in a service composition. Transactions help in improving the reliability and efficiency of the composite services.

Keywords: service provisioning; context; service discovery; Web Service Definition Language; WSDL; transactions; pervasive computing; composite services; web services.
