A Programming Interface for Application-Aware Adaptation in Mobile Computing

Brian D. Noble, Morgan Price, M. Satyanarayanan, CMU

One-line summary: API for negotiating with server to get one of k fixed representations of an object; extensions to Unix FS to add datatypes and a cache manager for the server. "Static GloMop".

Overview/Main Points




Static rather than dynamic (Satya says on-the-fly processing is "an optimization"); a festival of terminology; extensions to Unix FS are evil. Odyssey is about what you'd expect from a FS-centric group.
