Abstract. Pervasive computing environments such as our future homes
are the prototypical example of a dynamic, complex system where Service-
Oriented Computing techniques will play an important role. A home
equipped with heterogeneous devices, whose services and location con-
stantly change, needs to behave as a coherent system supporting its
inhabitants. In this paper, we present a fully implemented architecture
for domotic applications which uses the concept of a service as its funda-
mental abstraction. The architecture distinguishes between a pervasive
layer where devices and their basic internetworking live, and a composi-
tion layer where services can be dynamically composed as a reaction to
user desires or home events. Next to the architecture, we also illustrate a
