With the development of mobile terminal devices and network communication technology, service applications in mobile environments with large potential users become more and more popular. After analyzing the particularities and obstacles of the service transferring in mobile networks, this paper introduces a mobile service transferring framework based on the agent middleware, aiming to improve the efficiency and performance of service delivery in mobile environments. As the communication bridge between mobile application service servers and mobile terminal applications, it not only can achieve efficient and timely interaction between them and reduce the service transferring workload of mobile terminal devices, but shield off heterogeneities of terminal platforms and network communication protocols. The service transferring framework offers some advantages, such as platform-independent, favorable extensibility, strong flexibility and well-behaved security. Mobile terminal users can utilize it to transfer services and resources in mobile environments efficiently, without worrying about the mobile network discontinuity and limited computing ability of mobile terminal devices. Moreover, it can provide user-centric services through building user profiles in order to improve user satisfaction and attract more users.
