Middleware for application development

This chapter download introduces you to two types of middleware: adaptation middleware and mobile agent systems.


Chapter 6 of  Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing by Frank Adelstein, Sandeep K. S. Gupta, Golden G. Richard III and Loren Schwiebert introduces two types of middleware, adaptation middleware and mobile agent systems. Adaptation middleware assists applications in providing the best quality of service possible to users, given the widely fluctuating resource levels that may exist in mobile environments. Mobile agents provide an alternative to static client/server systems for designing interesting mobile applications that access remote data and computational services.  (Reproduced from the book Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing, ISBN 0071412379, Copyright 2005, The McGraw-Hill Companies.
