Abstract

It is widely acknowledged that information such as web content should be adapted for mobile platforms to account for restrictions in mobile environments. As emerging mobile platforms such as different kinds of Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) tend to vary largely in their capabilities, we suggest that adaptation should be platform-specific. Common approaches for content adaptation are automated conversion and explicit specification of adapted content, with a trade-off between quality and development/maintenance effort. As alternative avoiding this trade-off, we propose a simple objectoriented framework for content adaptation. To facilitate the use of this framework in the Web, we base our approach on the object-oriented WebComposition model and its XML-based implementation WCML. We apply our object-oriented approach to an example application to demonstrate how object-oriented specification of platform-adapted content reduces development/maintenance effort.
