Service applications in mobile environment with large potential users become more and more popular. However, there are some limitations and obstacles for service delivery in mobile environment because of the particularity of mobile network and limiting ability of mobile terminals. In order to improve the efficiency and performance of service delivery, this paper introduces a middleware-based approach for mobile service delivery. In this way, the workload of mobile terminal devices can be reduced and the heterogeneities of terminal platforms and network communication protocols can be shielded off. Platform-independent, favorable extensibility, strong flexibility and well-behaved security are the typical advantages of the mobile delivery approach.
