Abstract. Pervasive systems, and domotics in particular, is an applica-
tion area where heterogeneity is the norm, with thousands of autonomous
heterogeneous devices live together and need to interoperate. One of the
greatest difficulties in developing middleware for smart homes is that this
kind of systems are extremely difficult to test and verify. We propose to
reduce the testing costs by replacing actual home services with virtual
stubs behaving as if they were actual hardware installed somewhere in
the house and, most importantly, to visualize the behaviour of the home
to give the user the impression and feedback of being in a real home.
1 Introduction
Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is a leading paradigm to create state of the
art information systems. It is widely used in the development of complex software
artifacts that require high interoperability, scalability, security, and reliability.
