Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, have fundamentally changed the Internet access and communication patterns, as they enabled the ubiquitous consumption of Web and multimedia contents and of social- and location-aware services. The requirements of next-generation mobile and pervasive computing applications demonstrate the limits of traditional TCP/IP-based communication paradigms and call for new concepts and tools that can enable adaptive and robust communications. This needs support from innovative communication middleware that provides a new set of abstractions and programming paradigms designed to realize seamless mobility and disruption tolerant communications. This paper describes the requirements and programming models for next-generation communications middleware, stemming from our experience in designing and implementing the Agile Computing Middleware.
