Parallel adaptive mobile web clipping
– Wireless mobile access to the Internet is an indispensable tool for private and corporate users alike; but both industry and academia recognize the need for better service. Improvements to commercial clipping software are biased toward the needs of the service provider in the form of better billing, dynamic provisioning, etc. Improvements to academic clipping servers focus on exploiting inherent parallelism on a variety of levels but seem to have missed one that our early investigations uncovered. The syntax of the markup language that describes a typical Web page has a tree-like structure, which suggests inherent parallelism, provided the data in one branch of the syntax tree can be processed independently of the others. This research examines the potential for improved quality of service to a handheld device on a wireless link by using a parallel cluster computing architecture as an in-stream proxy server, exploiting parallelism during the markup language transcoding process.
