Middleware supporting mobile applications must provide naming and discovery functionalities to enable anytime and anywhere service access. In this chapter, we survey existing service-discovery standards, identify four challenges for naming and discovery in a mobile environment, and provide a detailed discussion of the approaches that can be used to address each of these challenges.
