In this paper, we propose a middleware library for efficiently developing distributed cooperative applications consisting of a large number of cellular phone users. Our middleware provides: (1) a dynamic group formation mechanism depending on users' locations and preferred subjects; and (2) a group communication mechanism called multiway synchronization for multicasting, synchronization and mutual exclusion. Most of Java executors on cellular phones do not support direct communication among… CONTINUE READING
