A MIDDLEWARE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR MOBILE SERVICES BASED ON AN ENTERPRISE SERVICE BUS - Mobile Service Provisioning as SOA-Integration Problem

Michael Decker, Rebecca Bulander

Abstract

A middleware platform especially designed for the provisioning of data services for handheld computers using wireless data communication (e.g. smartphones, PDAs) has to offer a variety of different features. Some of these features have to be provided by external parties, e.g. billing or content syndication. The integration of all these features while satisfying mobile-specific challenges is a demanding task. In the article at hand we thus describe a middleware platform for mobile services which follows the idea of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). An ESB is a communication backbone for a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based on asynchronous communication with integration capabilities like transformation or intelligent routing. Because of its specific characteristics an ESB is an appropriate fundament for mobile service provisioning.
