Abstract

Application mobility has the potential to enhance user experience in ubiquitous computing environments by providing a flexible and reusable solution to managing applications across myriad computing devices, especially when applications adapt to the characteristics of individual devices. Using example scenarios, we argue that application mobility is a better solution to the problem of accessing remote applications than schemes like remote desktop which only export displays. Our mobile application framework provides the opportunity for applications to better adapt their user interface to the new environment. This ability is enhanced through the use of the Model-View-Controller design pattern. Our framework also uses discovery mechanisms to find potential migration targets. Lost applications are recovered through a simple scheme called homing. A preliminary implementation for our framework is based on the JADE mobile agent platform.
