This article presents a WAP-enabled transaction model that allows timely and reliable access to heterogeneous databases while coping with the mobility issue. It extends the scope of the existing multidatabase systems without any adverse effect on the preexisting local and global users. The model is implemented as a software module based on the multilayered approach capable of supporting preexisting global users on the wired network in addition to the mobile users. A sample application based on the proposed model is also described. Performance of the proposed WAP-enabled transaction model for the sample application is evaluated through simulation using the NOKIA WAP simulator.
