Abstract

It is now feasible to invoke basic web services on a smart phone due to the advances in wireless devices and mobile communication technologies. While mobile web service clients are common these days, we have studied the scope of providing web services from smart phones. Although the applications possible with Mobile Host are quite welcoming, the scalability of such a Mobile Host is observed to be considerably low. In the scalability analysis of our Mobile Host, we have observed that binary compression of SOAP messages being exchanged over cellular network have greatly improved the performance of the Mobile Host. While binary compression is observed to be very efficient, the mechanism has raised the need for an intermediary in the mobile web service invocation cycle. The paper addresses our mobile web service message optimization scenario, at the enterprise service bus technology based mediation framework, with evaluation results.
