Delivery Context Negotiated by Mobile Agents Using CC/PP [chapter]

Rosa Gil, Roberto García, Jaime Delgado
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The key idea is content customisation depending on device description with CC/PP (Composite Capability/Preference Profile). The objective is twofold.  ...  Second, to rationalise network and device use spending only the necessary resources. Altogether, it is a new step in the direction marked by the use of mobile agents in mobile devices.  ...  A detailed view of how customisation is managed and how device profiles are used during negotiations is shown in Section 3. Integrating with future We are looking at future tendencies.  ...

Ubiquitous Access to Personalised Services [chapter]

Tore E. Jønvik, Anne Marie Hartvigsen, Do Thanh
2003 Mobile and Wireless Communications  
With such a User Profile, ubiquitous and customised access to applications and services will be a reality. The paper starts with a brief overview of the XML Web service concept.  ...  The User profile is described in details before the main focus, which is about realising the User Profile as an XML service. In the conclusion, further works and activities are proposed.  ...  Conforming to de facto Web service standards, the UPWS uses the SOAP protocol for wrapping data to be exchanged between the user profile and the application.  ...
