Abstract Abstract. In the advent of ubiquitous mobile systems in general and mobile code in particular, network latency is a critical factor due to the limited bandwidth in currentday networks. This paper investigates application streaming, a technique that exploits parallelism between loading and execution of code to reduce network latency. It allows applications to migrate from host to host without sacrificing execution time during the migration phase. We show that the performance of application streaming largely depends on the component migration strategies deployed. We implemented one of the more powerful migrating strategies, where components migrate under control of a supervisor. Our experiments, in Java, show that this migration strategy can reduce network latency almost completely. We can also provide design guidelines for building new mobile applications that are tailored to the proposed technique, so that they are able to migrate as if there were no network latency at all.
