Overview: In mobile environments, data dissemination is more challenging due to the limited, wireless bandwidth available for communication, frequent disconnections and low power withholding capacity of mobile devices. Mobile commerce is the next growing area in electronic commerce and mobile computing. These are sophisticated, data intensive mobile applications whose success strongly depends on the efficiency by which data are disseminated to a large number of mobile users.
