<p><b>Abstract</b>—The emergence of powerful portable computers, along with advances in wireless communication technologies, has made mobile computing a reality. Among the applications that are finding their way to the market of mobile computing—those that involve data management—hold a prominent position. In the past few years, there has been a tremendous surge of research in the area of data management in mobile computing. This research has produced interesting results in areas such as data dissemination over limited bandwidth channels, location-dependent querying of data, and advanced interfaces for mobile computers. This paper is an effort to survey these techniques and to classify this research in a few broad areas.</p>
Mobile computing, databases, data dissemination, bandwidth, location-dependent queries, interfaces, transaction management.
