This paper presents the "Solar" system framework that allows resources to advertise context-sensitive names and for applications to make context-sensitive name queries. The heart of our framework is a small specification language that allows composition of "context-processing operators" to calculate the desired context. Resources use the framework to register names, and applications use the framework to look up context-sensitive name descriptions. The back-end system executes these operators and constantly updates the context values, adjusting advertised names and informing applications about changes. We report experimental results from a prototype, using a modified version of the intentional naming system (INS) as the core directory service.
