"With an increasing use of mobile and hand-held computing devices, there is a need for new algorithms for data and transaction management in mobile environments. Devices are becoming more and more computationally capable and in many cases power are no more a critical issue: for example, laptops, which can be charged time to time. The reliability of communication links is also not of concern. The bottleneck in many of these situations is turning out to be the communication bandwidth. In this paper, the authors present a mobile transaction management protocol, which employs a lazy commit strategy to minimize the bandwidth utilization and the frequency of communication."
