We designed a component-based development- process for mobile assistants that we realized in the ELEPHANT (ELEments for Pervasive and Handheld AssistaNTs) system.The ELEPHANT system encompasses a middleware solution for mobile assistants. In a first step users can utilize this system to mash-up interactive components into adaptive application-nodes. In a second step users can compose a workflow of a full functional application by linking application-nodes. The overal goal of the system is to minimize the effort required for creating, managing, and using mobile assistants with enhanced capabilities such as utilizing user and device presence information and accessing hardware near sensor data. We propose a ditributed system and the use of concepts found in a social software for collaboratively developing mobile assistants.
