Design and implementation of Java-based HTTP input channel for integrated WLAN and GPRS networks.
Proc. 12th IEEE International Conference on Networks, Singapore, 258-262.
HTTP is the most crucial protocol enabling clientserver
applications. With the Internet converging and becoming
mobile accessible, to adaptively manage HTTP connection is
challenging. This paper describes the design and implementation
of architecture for Java-based HTTP input channel for multiaccess
wireless networks. A HTTP input channel can adapt its
behavior to the changing network status. Adaptation includes
both sensible selecting and dynamic switching the underlying
connection used, as well as to cope with disconnection situation.
Experiments were performed in a GPRS-WLAN integrated
environment to demonstrate the operational correctness of the
architecture. Performance metrics were measured and analyzed.
