Access from EThOS:
As technololcal advances are made in software and hardware, the feasibility of accessing information "any time, anywhere" is becoming a reality. In a mobile computing environment, a potentially large number of mobile and fixed users may simultaneously access shared data; therefore, there is a need to provide a means to allow concurrent management of transactions. Specific characteristics of mobile environments make traditional transaction management techniques no longer appropriate. This is due to a fact that the ACID properties of transactions are not simply followed, in particular the atomicity property. Thus, transaction management models adopting weaker forms of atomicity are needed.
