Paper Title:
Mobile Shopping Assistant: Integration of Mobile Applications and Web Services


The goal of this poster is to describe our implementation of a new architecture enabling efficient integration between mobile phone applications and Web Services. Using this architecture, we have implemented a mobile shopping assistant described further. In order to build this architecture, we designed an innovative XML compression mechanism to facilitate data exchange between mobile phones and Web Services. We also designed a smart connection manager to control asynchronous communication for all possible channels of a mobile phone. In addition, we used diverse input modes in order to extend users' access to Web Services.
