Virtualization is creating new opportunities for innovative uses of middleware technologies. In this paper, the authors present such opportunities for mobile or pervasive environments, where virtualization efforts face challenges that include the diversity of platforms and devices present in these domains, dynamic device and resource behaviors, and the efficient use and sharing of such resources. Specifically, they leverage middleware to significantly extend virtualization technologies in terms of their efficient support for resource sharing in the presence of diversity, dynamics, and mobility.
