Mobile computing introduces many benefits in terms of remote access to data and functions via software services. However, users may wish to interact with many services from many different devices. This raises an important question regarding how to provide services in a way that makes them accessible to a wide range of heterogeneous devices. This paper presents a way of uniquely representing a service in a device-independent way. The proposed representation describes both the functionality of the service and the user interface in a single entity. By representing services in this way, functionality is extended across a greater range of client devices and a greater range of user interface modalities
