Abstract: Due to the asynchronous and loosely coupled communication style, Message-oriented Middleware (MOM) platforms have been commonly adopted for supporting the development of networked mobile applications. However, one of the most significant limitations of current MOMs for mobile platforms is that they typically support a single, predefined communication paradigm (e.g., publish/subscribe). Such a restriction limits the scope of applications supported by the middleware. In order to mitigate such a limitation, this paper presents a middleware for mobile devices capable of supporting an extensible set of message-oriented communication paradigms (e.g. tuple spaces, message queue, publish/subscribe). Supported by an integrated architecture, the middleware encapsulates common features that deal with mobility issues and provides them as shared, reusable components. Evaluation results show that the overhead introduced by such a multi-paradigm approach is minimal, both in memory footprint and runtime performance.
