Abstract

In this paper, we argue that middleware for wired distributed systems cannot be used in a mobile setting, as the principle of transparency that has driven their design runs counter to the new degrees of awareness imposed by mobility. We propose the marriage of reflection and metadata as a means for middleware to give applications dynamic access to information about their execution context. Finally, we describe a conceptual model that provides the basis of our reflective middleware.
