Asa consequence of the increasing role of computers throughout society, computers, especially mobile devices, are used in diverse situations. Additionally, the computing environment is becoming more changeable. A network application coordinating mobile devices needs to be able to adapt to changes in the environments. In this paper, we propose a new architecture for mobile computing, which uses a mobile agent technology and adapts to changes flexibly. The framework splits the specification of an application into network environments, coordination logic and patterns. Patterns are applied to the coordination logic in order to derive appropriate behaviors automatically.
