Using code collection to support large applications on mobile devices
The progress of mobile device technology unfolds a new spectrum of applications that challenges conventional infrastructure models. Most of these devices are perceived by their users as "appliances" rather than computers and accordingly the application management should be done transparently by the underlying system unlike classic applications managed explicitly by the user. Memory management on such devices should consider new types of mobile applications involving code mobility such as mobile agents, active networks and context aware applications. This paper describes a new code management technique, called "code collection" and proposes a specific code collection algorithm, the Adaptive Code Collection Algorithm (ACCAL). Code collection is a mechanism for transparently loading and discarding application components on mobile devices at runtime that is designed to permit very low memory usage and at the same time good performance by focusing memory usage on the ho...
