Abstract: The rapid growth of the Internet has brought us endless choice, but it is also difficult to find items according to personal interests. Nowadays, a website is more like an island. In order to find useful information, you need to jump from one page to another page through the links. A web based system for managing context would give users the ability to manage personal context, collect interesting links, and attach notes, so that only one or two clicks would be required to reach the useful information. Such context is valuable, so it would also be useful if it could be shared with others. We survey the technology available to create the Enriched Web Services Architecture in order to give a rich user experience in a browser application. We also survey current approaches and issues in managing and sharing context. Based on both surveys we propose architecture for context management and sharing. An example system, for Management and Sharing of Context (MSC) is built as a case study and evaluated. The example system helps people to collect links and articles in order to manage their context and share context with others.
