Implementation of Web Service Based U-Learning
In this article, we aimed a web service based learning system for ubiquitous computing environment. In the environment, there used many devices and it can be different types according to company. To support the learning service with each different type, we implemented the web service considering meta data related the device types. The meta data include information of device characteristics such as screen size, memory capability, and type of operating system. The management service for the meta data register in UDDI. And the other web service is deal with control of learning contents.
