Wit: Infrastructure for Wireless Palmtop Computing

Terri Watson, UW

One-line summary: Proxy-like system based on ParcTab IRnet, where Tcl is the programming language and Tcl-DP-like IPC the transport. Emphasis on application partitioning between mobile and fixed world, but no uniform architecture/methodology for doing so, and no notion of BW management for high-bw apps.

Overview/Main Points

Interesting conclusions (from her quals talk):


Implemented instance of proxy concept: application partitioning using a simple scripting language.
