    Reaching context-awareness is still an open issue in pervasive systems like smart spaces (SS). With the help of context a smart space application can react to the current situation or be proactive and take into account coming circumstances. This paper describes the ongoing research on how context awareness - an ability to identify and react - is enabled for the heterogeneous smart space applications. This work presents innovative context-awareness micro-architecture to design software in a way that it is able to react to changes based on information gathered via a context monitoring agent and inferred by a context reasoning agent. The usage of the context-awareness micro-architecture is validated with two scenarios which are instantiated to a personal smart space and a smart home.
