A Design Pattern for the Transfer of Running Applications Between Devices
Source: University of Bergen
Mobile information systems are growing in acceptance; in order for the vision of true mobility to be realized users must be able to seamlessly move running applications between devices in an adhoc manner. The task of implementing mechanisms to ensure that a running application is successfully moved from one device to another can be considered a generic task, wherein the same fundamental design can be reused. This paper tenders a domain specific design pre-pattern that resolves the problems associated with transferring a running application from one device to another whilst maintaining state and tailoring to capabilities.
