Extensible GUIs for Remote Application Control on Mobile Devices
July/August 2008 (vol. 28 no. 4)
pp. 50-57

This framework lets users easily and effectively use desktop applications on mobile devices without any redesign. An automatically generated description of the original interface lets the original application be recreated and migrated to nomadic scenarios. Users can also customize interfaces to suit their needs and match a device's capabilities.
