Mobile Web Services (MobWSs) are a promising technology for the integration of Information Technology (IT) and TeleCommunication (TelCo) domains. The advancements in mobile communication and device technology, in terms of software and hardware, have revolutionized the focus of research and industry to investigate mobile service provisioning platforms and architectures. In this paper, the authors present a concept and architecture of a RESTInterfaced Mobile Web Server as a service delivery platform. Here, they discuss about the interaction strategy and URL-based access techniques for short-lived synchronousMobWS. The paper focuses on in-depth explanation of software architecture and its components of server and compares the payload requirements with the state-or-the-art SOAP based MobWS.
