Ubiquitous Computing is a paradigm containing the characteristics to break away from the traditional desktop computing system and turn to such computer systems where everything is available & accessible everywhere through various devices while keeping them effectively invisible. The accomplishment of this vision requires a deep involvement of multiple areas including software engineering. Software engineering plays a major role in ubi-comp world, but the lack of appropriate software engineering approaches is identified as a major obstacle on the route to propose a general level framework that should be adopted for all kinds of ubi-comp applications. The very initial step which is still required for this vision is to identify all potential software engineering challenges in the ubi-comp era. In this paper we have made a survey of various ubi-comp applications and extracted a number of software engineering challenges faced by other researchers during the development of such applications. This work provides a future direction for other researchers and developers to make the process of providing an appropriate framework for building ubi-comp application more effectively.
