— There are two somewhat conflicting development trends in computer engineering.
On one hand, there is a push towards massively parallel networks of severely
resource-limited devices such as ad-hoc wireless networks. On the other hand,
due to the emergence of webservices, resource-intensive XML has become a default
representation for communication and processing. The problem is particularly
acute in situations where XML needs to be processed on resource-limited devices
such as mobile phones. This paper presents an architecture and a methodology for
dynamically generating resourceoptimized native run-time executables for such
situations. A specific implementation based on this approach shows that size of
the resulting executables is reduced by a factor of four when compared with the
raw input XML files.
