Implementation of a proof-of-concept mobile web OS architecture

Abstract [en]

Today it is possible to always carry around a computer with an available network connection. These computers can be mobile phones or other handheld devices with data processing and bandwidth performance comparable to a desktop computer. This combined with the spreading of network connections makes it possible to think in new paths when developing network-based applications. Such applications can be referred to as two-tiers, and they often reside on different operating systems giving the software developer multiple aspects to consider with environments, network dependency and programming languages. This thesis investigates how a proof-of-concept mobile Web OS architecture can be implemented. To oppose the constant network dependency an offline mode is being tested with support from Google Gears. The architecture should deploy client-side applications automatically, without the client needing to download and install them separately. The conclusion is that an offline mode is possible for Web applications with support from the Google Gears browser plugin (the same feature that can be found in the drafts of the forthcoming HTML5). It is also proven that applications can be automatically deployed on the client when they are made available on the server.
