Abstract: Thin client technology is widely available for many platforms as an alternative configuration to traditional network architectures. This research closely examines the design of thin client technology and how it could be used in a mobile computing environment. This examination is placed in the context of rapidly evolving technologies such as Sun Microsystem's Kilobyte Virtual Machine implementation for mobile devices. A survey of differing classes of mobile devices shows the potential for expanding these devices' capability beyond locally installed programs. Wireless connectivity is allowing developers to plan on high-bandwidth connectivity for networked applications though this is still in its infancy. A combination of these synergistic technologies could potentially create a new type of computing environment. This new environment is consistent with the pervasive computing paradigm created in the early 1990s. This research project outlines the capabilities that this type of environment could create and implements a subset of this vision using thin client technology in combination with a Java 2 Micro Edition enabled, mobile device. The goal is to fully understand the capabilities and limitations of such a device within the design and testing environment created.
