    The ontology-enabled pervasive computing applications that enable users to perform complex tasks in information-rich, device-rich and service-rich environments is discussed. To support task computing, a Task Computing Environment (TCE) including client environment, service discovery mechanism and Semantic web services and tools was implemented. TCE is composed of several components including STEER (Semantic Task Execution EditoR), White Hole and PIPE (Pervasive Instance Provision Environment). STEER bridges the gap between what the users want to do and what they can do by organizing the unwieldy mass of services into likely courses of useful action.
