M2MI has been thought of as a paradigm for applications running on ad hoc networks of fixed and mobile wireless proximal devices. For this to function, so far, we have relied on the human configuration of the devices sharing the same application. This includes, setting up the M2MI layer through Java, and starting the M2MI application. M2MI has worked fine under this scheme. A more general approach is to join a network and automatically discover any services available, in the case we have the M2MI layer already started. Afterwards, we can choose the service that we want to use. For this, a service discovery protocol and middleware would be in demand, applied in the same fashion by all devices implementing M2MI technology. Thus, this service middleware should be included into the M2MI library.
