Abstract

In this paper, we present a new mobility-support model for applications, Application Module Request Broker (AMRB). We focus on two types of mobility: host mobility and application code mobility. These two types of mobility dynamically change the binding between applications name and location in the network. AMRB conceals these changes of binding to reduce a complexity in development of applications. In AMRB, we deal with mobile application codes that communicate with each other as Application Modules (AMs). AMRB provides AM's service transparent communication for applications by using a specifier which does not need to include any network location information. Furthermore, applications can use AM's service transparently of migration by exploiting location management mechanism. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of AMRB and some evaluations. Also, we demonstrate a sample application that AMRB is effective for developing mobile sensor type applications.
