Context information plays an important role in context-aware mobile commerce (m-commerce) applications. Context information must be preprocessed, integrated and modelled before being stored and then used in a context-aware m-commerce application. Based on Knowledge Management (KM) theories and practice, this paper proposes a framework that uses several information technologies to collect, process, integrate, model, store and use context information. This framework will help effectively manage this information, as well as provide integrated context information about location, weather, time and user activities to enable context-awareness of an m-commerce application.
