Abstract: Mobile agents are ideal for mobile computing environments because of their ability to support asynchronous communication and flexible query processing since tasks can be delegated to mobile agents when a mobile client is disconnected. This paper explores the use of mobile agents in personalizing information gathering for mobile database clients. Personalized data take the form of materialized views and personalization is provided in the form of view maintenance options. These options, expressed using an extended SQL Create View command, offer a finer grain of control and balance between data availability and currency, the amount of wireless communication and the cost of malntaixfing consistency. The paper defines re-computational consistency and introduces new levels of materialized view consistency to better characterize the mobile client view currency customizations.
