Abstract:In this paper, we concentrate on a specific class of applications intended to run on fixed network computers as well as mobile, potentially disconnected, devices. We call these relocating applications. Our aim is to support their data requirements such that no modification to the application code is needed for data management or disconnection management. We approach this challenge through the use of an application manager, such as a workflow management system, that has a richer awareness of applications through an application schema that describes sufficient data requirement information for the execution of application instances.
