Mobile applications are required to operate in environments characterised by change. More specifically, the availability of resources and services may change significantly during a typical period of system operation. As a consequence, adaptive mobile applications need to be capable of adapting to these changes to ensure they offer the best possible level of service to the user. Our experiences of developing and evaluating adaptive context-aware applications in mobile environments has led us to believe that existing architectures fail to provide the necessary support for such applications. In this paper, we discuss the shortcomings of existing approaches and present work on our own architecture that has been designed to meet the key requirements of context-aware adaptive applications.
