Data dissemination in a mobile computing environment typically uses push based data delivery model. Processing queries under this scenario is challenging because we need to organize the broadcast data to efficiently process queries of an average mobile client. In this paper, we adopt the learning technique from [2] in order to learn the patterns of queries of the average mobile user. We then propose a method to create various summary databases from the main database available at server side, on the basis of these query patterns.
