This chapter presents an approach to create an abstraction layer and appropriate tools for rapid application development for Smart Spaces. The proposed framework is described together with the overall process for application development. An approach of how to integrate OWL-S grounding into the agents is described for allowing service discovery and composition. We also show results of a case study implementation to illustrate the functionality of the proposed framework. This case study shows that interoperability can be realized by agents that describe information about themselves using some common ontology.
