The development of wireless technology has led to mobile computing, a new era in data communication and processing (Barbara, 1999; Myers & Beigl, 2003). With this technology, people can now access information anytime and anywhere using a portable, wireless computer powered by battery (e.g., PDAs). These portable computers communicate with a central stationary server via a wireless channel. Mobile computing provides database applications with useful aspects of wireless technology known as mobile databases.
