ASTEC - Advanced Software Technology

An Approach to Mobile Software Robots for the WWW

I describe a framework for developing mobile software robots by using the Planet mobile object system, which is characterized by language-neutral layered architecture, the native code execution of mobile objects, and asynchronous object passing. Then I present an approach to implementing mobile Web search robots that takes full advantage of these characteristics, and we base our discussion of its effectiveness on experiments conducted in the Internet environment.
