Mobile networks composed of devices interconnected by wireless communication media frequently suffer from partitions. If mobile devices depend on software services running on remote devices, such partitions may render the software services unavailable. We propose the use of code mobility to mitigate the unavailability of software services in mobile networks. We discuss the issues of existing mobility mechanisms, identify four characteristics necessary to support code mobility in mobile networks, and propose a model for code mobility, the Message-Oriented Mobility (MOM) model, that features such characteristics.
