In mobile ad hoc networks, synchronous communication mechanisms appear to be not suitable, since these assume that the involved entities are present at the same time during the interactions. On the other hand, asynchronous mechanisms seem to be better suited for mobile environments characterised with frequently intermittent connectivity. Therefore, message oriented middleware based on the asynchronous communication paradigm seems a reasonable choice in these environments.
This paper outlines the expected research contribution of my PhD work in the area of the message oriented middleware for mobile ad hoc environments. The key aspect of my approach is the exploitation of context information to enable communication also in extreme scenarios, where topology reconfigurations are frequent and network partitions are the norm rather than the exception, in an efficient way in terms of the use of the possibly scarce resources of mobile devices.
