This paper discusses challenges of implementing RMI over mobile phone platforms. Improving Distributed Computing capabilities in mobile phones has three emerging challenges: first, mobile devices have a limited processing power and storage, second, mobile devices have a limited electrical power, and third, there is a limited networking capability. Java RMI supports wireless environments, such as Bluetooth, General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), and Wirelesses LAN (WLAN). It provides a software infrastructure for Desktop and Server environments, but unfortunately there is a lack of support over limited devices such as mobile phones.
