This paper introduces SENSER, a generic middleware framework that allows for the Web access and management of SENsor networks by virtualizing their functionalities as SERvices, in a way that is programming language and sensor network development platform independent. We present the SENSER architectural model and provide a concrete Java-based implementation that exposes the framework as two Web services, cleanly separating regular user operations from administration operations. This prototype implementation has been validated with the development of two applications, and submitted to a performance analysis that measured the overhead imposed by middleware layer and its scability when the number of requests increases. We have also performed two integration exercises targetting Callas and SWE networks.
