Abstract [en]

This report describes a master thesis performed at SICS (Swedish Institute of Computer Science) and KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm.

Ajax stands for "Asynchronous JavaScript and XML" and it's not a programming language, but a suite of technologies used to develop web applications with more interactivity than the traditional web pages.

Ajax applications can be adapted for mobile and constrained devices. This has been called Mobile Ajax. While the technique is the same, Mobile Ajax generally is considered to be a special case of Ajax, because it deals with problems specific to the mobile market.

The purpose of this thesis has been to examine which possibilities and disadvantages has the Mobile Ajax from developers and users perspective. In addition we compare Mobile Ajax with Java Micro Edition (Java ME) and Flash Lite.

This has been done through literature studies and development of a databased chat client (MAIM -Mobile Ajax Instant Messenger). The application sends and receives direct messages in real time between differently mobile devices. Then MAIM application has been compared with our own developed Java ME and Flash Lite chat clients.

We have tested all three applications with different models of mobile devices and on different web browsers. The results have shown that mobile Ajax makes possible the creation of sophisticated and dynamic mobile web applications and is better than the classic web application model, but this requires that the mobile device has a modern and compatible web browser like Opera mobile.

 

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport beskriver ett examensarbete utfört på SICS (Swedish Institute of Computer Science) och KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan) i Stockholm.

Ajax står för "Asynchronous JavaScript and XML" och är inte något programmeringsspråk, utan ett samlingsnamn för några tekniker som kan användas för att utveckla webbtillämpningar med mer interaktivitet än traditionella webbsidor.

Ajax-tillämpningar kan anpassas till mobila och begränsade enheter. Detta har fått namnet Mobile Ajax . Medan tekniken är det samma, ses Mobile Ajax som ett specialfall av Ajax, för att den behandlar problem som är specifika till den mobila marknaden.

Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att undersöka vilka möjligheter och nackdelar som Mobile Ajax har utifrån ett utvecklar- och användarperspektiv. Dessutom jämför vi Mobile Ajax med Java Micro Edition (Java ME) och Flash Lite.

Detta har gjorts genom litteraturstudier och utveckling av en databasbaserad chattklient (MAIM -Mobile Ajax Instant Messenger). Applikationen skickar och tar emot direkt meddelanden i realtid mellan olika mobila enheter. MAIM har sedan jämförts med egenutvecklade Java ME och Flash Lite chattklienter.

Vi har testat alla tre applikationer med olika modeller av mobila enheter och på olika webbläsare. Resultaten har visat att Mobile Ajax möjliggör skapandet av sofistikerade och dynamiska mobila webbapplikationer och är mycket bättre än den klassiska webbapplikationsmodellen. Men detta förutsätter att den mobila enheten har en "modern" och kompatibel webbläsare t.ex. Opera Mobile.
