A MA(Mobile Agent) is a computer program which autonomously migrates within the network and works on behalf of a user. With the progress of ubiquitous computing environments, MA paradigm becomes more useful paradigm because MA paradigm makes it possible for various user-centric services, such as follow-me service, private secretary service, and etc. Also, in ubiquitous environments, the cell phone has very important role, but the cell phone cannot support the MA technology because J2ME(Java2 Micro Edition) CLDC(Connected Limited Device Configuration), which is the java platform for cell phone, does not support the essential facilities for the mobility of the mobile agents such as reflection, dynamic class loading, and object serialization due to security problem of the cell phone. So, in this paper, we propose the scheme that the MAP(Mobile Agent Platform) dynamically generates the UI(User Interface) according to the user’s device. Also, we show the experimental results of our proposed scheme. By using our proposed scheme, the user gets the service of MA by the cell phone.
