In this paper we address the problem of efficiently routing queries among peers in a mobile ad-hoc network. Peers possess a local database and can pose queries to other peers, forming a distributed peer database application. In contrast to traditional networking, routing a query involves its delivery to as many as possible peers that are relevant to the query while at the same time minimizing the number of non-relevant peers involved in the process, therefore economizing on the limited network

The new protocols utilize dominant pruning to distribute queries while at the same time incorporate application layer specifics in order to minimize the cost of routing. The proposed protocols are evaluated through extensive simulations and are proved suitable for wireless mobile environments.
