A Framework for an Application Based Mobile Cache Consistency Method
In a mobile environment, maintaining cache consistency is challenging. Applying one type of consistency levels either strict or weak is not suitable all the time, as the consistency requirements mainly depend on the mobile application system and differ from one to another. Also forcing the mobile client to use its cache data for the purpose of reading only limits the functionality of the caching. The stateful scheme Multi-level Mobile Cache Consistency Protocol that works in client-server architecture supports different levels of consistency. The Mobile client is able to issue updates transactions, and determine the consistency requirements upon its interest.
