For the ubiquitous computing environment, an important assumption is that all the components in any specific environment are connected with each other. With this assumption, we introduce an effective scheme to provide a personalized service based on Virtual Personal World (VPW). Virtual Personal World (VPW) which is a model focused on service continuity with specially designed components. Previous ubiquitous frameworks have been concerned with the location where a user is provided any specific service. However those questions above are not the most important problems anymore in VPW. It concentrates on the point whether the services are successive or not, wherever a user goes to any place. Services are not regarded as a sum of functions which is embedded on any objects in any certain place. We conceptually define a resource management scheme based on a unified form of the object which participates in service provision, so called virtual object (VO). Thus the service can be described as the sum of functions of VOs. With our resource management scheme, users can utilize their required object as VO wherever it is located. And also, for better utilization of VPW service, we introduce a novel form of profiles and service provision scheme based on the polymorphism. Our simulation result shows that the Ratio of VPW pure service time is 0.15 % higher than conventional location based service. And also the possibility that users can meet adequate service he wants raised 29 % in our proposed VPW environment.
