Abstract

We have developed a system for sales staff to access database systems which contain the information on customers and travel plans through mobile terminals, such as a notebook Personal Computer (PC), from their location. This system uses a Java-based mobile agent system. Although it takes a comparatively long time for the first retrieval because the agent has to move to the mobile terminal, it is allowable for practical use. After the first retrieval, the communication time is nearly equal to the time for data transmission. We also propose the Intranet configuration where the mobile terminal can access to the server from on-board Local Area Network (LAN).
