Implicit in today's mobile information access scenarios is the assumption that the information required by the mobile host is readily available on the network and its location is “known” in a static fashion. There is a significant ongoing research on ways to overcome the problems (such as low-bandwidth of mobile networks) existing in delivering available information to mobile systems. We investigate the situations where the information required is not readily available on the network and it needs to be obtained by dynamically locating the required data and then possibly initiating a series of computations to obtain the information. This paper presents a layered architecture for addressing this problem generally and our initial implementation of this architecture.
