ROVER: A Toolkit for Mobile Information Access

Anthony D. Joseph, Alan F. deLespinasse, Joshua A. Tauber, David K. Gifford, and M. Frans Kaashoek, MIT LCS

One-line summary:

Overview/Main Points

Standardized abstraction using relocatable objects and queued RPC to support client-server mobile computing that operates in a weakly-connected or sporadically-connected environment. Think of RPC in which email is the transport.


Uniform mechanism for accessing and updating data to which mobile access is desired. Main value is probably not in retrofitting existing apps but in designing "mobile from the ground up" apps.
