The need for information access and processing in mobile computing
environments presents great challenges to database researchers. Apart
from advances in wireless communications and device technology, new data
management techniques are needed to provide a transparent interaction
between fixed and mobile devices in global information systems. A key
aspect is to provide a flexible and powerful transaction processing
infrastructure that takes into account the peculiarities of mobile
computing. Mobile transaction processing shall be able to transparently
deal with frequent disconnections and occasional movements of mobile
devices. This paper surveys the mobile transaction models proposed in
academia and outlines the state-of-the-art of transaction processing in
commercial mobile databases.
