Toward ubiquitous network society, there have been challenges to construct smart spaces in living space such as homes and offices by connecting embedded devices with each other; however, many existing smart spaces tend to depend on particular platform or be a self-contained environment. In this paper, we describe requirements on frameworks for smart spaces with embedded devices, and then propose a new framework based on the requirements. The proposed framework is designed to have high scalability and be suitable for cross-platform environments by employing RESTful web service for device interaction architecture. By encoding communication messages for requesting services in x-www-form-urlencoded scheme, the proposed framework can support many kinds of devices including resource-limited devices which can't afford an XML parser. Evaluation with existing frameworks shows the proposed framework is suitable as a framework for smart spaces because of its simple and lightweight architecture.
