    ABSTRACT: Network latency is one of the most critical factors for the usability of mobile SOA applications. This paper introduces prefetching and caching enhancements for an existing SOA framework for mobile applications to reduce the user perceived latency. Latency reduction is achieved by proactively sending data to the mobile device that could most likely be requested at a later time. This additional data is piggybacked onto responses to actual requests and injected into a client side cache, so that it can be used without an additional connection. The prefetching is done automatically using a sequence prediction algorithm. The benefit of prefetching and caching enhancements were evaluated for different network settings and a reduction of user perceived latency of up to 31% was found in a typical scenario. In contrast to other prefetching solutions, our piggybacking approach also allows to significantly increase battery lifetime of the mobile device.

    ABSTRACT: Implementations of mobile games have become prevalent industrial technology due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices. However, simultaneous-movement multiplayer games, games that a player competes simultaneously with other players, are usually affected by such parameters as latency, type of game architecture and type of communication technology. This paper makes a review of the above parameters, considering the pros and cons of the various techniques used in addressing each parameter. It then goes ahead to propose an enhanced mechanism for dealing with packet delays based on partitioning the game background into grids. The proposed design is implemented and tested using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communication technologies. The efficiency and effectiveness of the design are also analyzed.

    ABSTRACT: Current enterprise application mobility approaches tend to extend desktop paradigms to the mobile space. We believe that enterprise application mobility needs to evolve to a mobile-oriented business computing paradigm, where business functions and relevant collaboration options are made available to a large number of mobile users in the most appropriate manner. In this paradigm, users get just enough information and resources needed to make a business decision and execute it in a simple and secure manner. We present a service-oriented framework that allows mobile applications to easily interface with enterprise backends, and be lightweight and flexible through in-built context awareness and a Web 2.0 front-end. It allows interleaved execution of local, ambient and remote services; and provides both users and enterprises the ability to create, provision and execute lightweight dynamic applications. At the same time, the framework allows enterprises to control services and data users access through their devices.
