Abstract

See full text

An operator provides services to a population of client device, such as mobile communication devices, including search services accessed via an operator portal. A search gateway places a search object, in which user privacy is protected, into a distributed, transactional object (tuple) space. Resolvers monitoring the space read the search descriptors and coordinate an external search to be performed with result objects placed back in the space. The gateway removes the search result objects from the space, matching them with the user search for reporting to a user of the client device. Thereby, an increased amount of content is accessible across a distributed system.
