The Ambient Networks project develops an integrated prototype that combines all concepts developed across the project. As the development process is highly distributed and the developed functionality is quite diverse, a suitable mechanism was required that can integrate all these components. We describe a solution based on Web Service technologies that enables the interaction of components written in virtually any programming language and running on virtually any operating system. Standardized description mechanisms for the interfaces between the components and corresponding tools significantly ease the integration of the various components. A registration and lookup mechanism enables the resulting control plane to work as a truly distributed system.
