Context-aware computing is widely accepted as a promising paradigm to enable seamless computing. Several middlewares and ontology-based models for describing context information have been developed in order to support context-aware applications. However, the context variability, which refers to the possibility to infer or interpret different context information from different perspectives, has been neglected in the existing context modeling approaches. This paper presents an approach for context-aware software development based on a flexible product line based context model which significantly enhances reusability of context information by providing context variability constructs to satisfy different application needs.
