This paper considers the technical challenges associated with the development of applications designed to work over mobile ad hoc net-works (MANETs). The setting is one in which a miniature application core residing on a mobile host with limited resources is able to support a complex application in a changing open environment by exploiting ser-vices made available by other hosts it encounters. The proposed solution extends in a novel way the applicability of the service provision paradigm to the ad hoc wireless setting. The novelty of the approach rests with the accumulation and management of knowledge about the service structure and the mobility of hosts to ensure a degree of predictability during the service exploitation process.
