A Harness Control Application for Hand-Held Devices
This document describes the design of a Harness control application for hand-held devices. Some features and future directions are covered, as well as the limitation caused by the current state of the development tools for mobile computers. Section 1 describes the general idea of mobile interfaces to the Harness metacomputing system. In section 2 some of the mobile control application design issues for Harness are described, while section 3 analyzes the functionality of this application. Section 4 covers some other possibilities of the users collaboration utilizing Harness proxy plugins. Section 5 gives our conclusions about the most appropriate way of implementation and porting of the control application.
