Broadcasting in wireless mobile computing environments is an effective technique to disseminate information to a massive number of clients equipped with powerful, battery operated devices. To conserve the usage of energy, which is a scarce resource, the information to be broadcast must be organized so that the client can selectively tune in at the desired portion of the broadcast. In this paper, the efficient, energy conserving transaction processing in mobile broadcast environments is examined with widely accepted approaches to indexed data organizations suited for a single item retrieval. The basic idea is to share the index information on multiple data items based on the predeclaration technique. The analytical and simulation studies have been performed to evaluate the effectiveness of our methodology, showing that predeclaration-based transaction processing with selective tuning ability can provide a significant performance improvement of battery life, while retaining a low access time. Tolerance to access failures during transaction processing is also described
