Abstract

Mobile computing has developed exponentially in the last decade, and these days the world is well into the mobile era. Smart mobile devices, including tablets, pads and smartphones, have left the labs and have become essential in people’s lives. Mobile computing will continue to grow in the next few years in power and pervasiveness and is poised to become the dominant computing technology. Due to power and bandwidth constraints inherent to mobile computing, it is imperative to communicate with web services as efficiently as possible. This need for efficiency motivates our research. In this paper, we develop a theoretical light web service framework and a practical system to test existing technologies and performance of mobile devices. Also, we describe a new service architecture and a mobile portal interface.
