Prototyping, testing, and debugging pervasive applications are challenging tasks, but adequate tool support can greatly simplify them. The authors tackle this problem at the programming-language level. VisualRDK is a specialized graphical programming language that provides simple yet powerful constructs to master common programming tasks of pervasive computing applications. A special debug version detects and removes bugs in the application logic. The tool also handles distribution and device-specific programming models. This lets developers prototype applications quickly because they can concentrate on application logic.
