Web Services for Mobile Computing
In today's day-to-day life, mobile users are becoming popular clients to consume any type of web resources such as web service. However, there are problems in connecting mobile devices to existing WS. This paper focuses on three of the following challenge : time and speed, bandwidth/latency, limited resources. This paper implements and develops a cross-platform architecture for connecting mobile devices to the WS. The architecture includes a platform independent design of mobile client and a middleware for enhancing the communication between mobile clients and WS. Finally, the middleware can be deployed on Cloud Platforms, like Google App Engine and Amazon EC2, to enhance the scalability and reliability.
