MASC: Mobile Adaptive Software Components

Participants

Support

The Project MASC is supported by the French “Conseil Régional de Bretagne”.

Context and objectives

Nowadays we observe a multiplication of commercial offers for portable digital devices such as laptops and personal digital assistants (PDAs), which can be equipped -or are equipped natively- with Bluetooth or IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces. For the owners of such devices, the prospect of exchanging information and services with other people without systematically resorting to some infrastructure network should obviously appear as an attractive one. Yet, although many devices are nowadays capable of ad hoc communication, this possibility is still rarely used. There are actually several reasons for this apparent lack of interest in ad hoc communication. Among these reasons is the fact that most of the application software we are nowadays familiar with (electronic mail, discussion forums, file transfer and sharing, etc.) was designed and implemented so as to be used on traditional workstations connected to infrastructure networks. As a consequence most of the abovementioned applications implementations are usually based on the client-server paradigm, with which services are actually offered by servers whose accessibility must be guaranteed to client programs. Moreover these applications often rely on chatty protocols, and they require synchronous interactions between clients and servers.

Our work aims at fostering the design, the implementation, and the deployment of new application services capable of running on mobile, ad hoc communicating devices. In this work we address problems pertaining to the definition of such application services, to their deployment on mobile devices, and to their execution on these devices.
