Abstract: Small, lightweight, wireless handheld devices, such as cellular phones and PDAs, that are technologically advanced and can be used anywhere, are becoming increasingly popular. Mobile/PDA/Palm Pilot penetration are getting higher and higher. The penetration rate of mobile in Asia forecasted to 310 million in 2005. In the past few years, many mobile computing applications have based developed for handheld devices including many mobile service/ information access applications, m-commerce, and mobile office. Many people are using the PDA, mobile phone to retrieve news but they are not using wireless handheld devices to do the financial stock transaction. It is because wireless handheld devices must run these applications on wireless network still suffer from low bandwidth, greater latency, and network errors as well as having high network connection costs. In this project, we investigate a platform for developing and for deploying mobile agent-enabled applications wireless handheld devices. The proposed approach is PDAgent, a lightweight and highly portable MA platform for wireless handheld devices using the proposed approach. PDAgent requires minimum network connectivity and deploy the application to perform various tasks on behalf of the user over the wired network. It is found that the proposed system outperforms the traditional approach and it is good to apply this approach on financial stock transaction which requires stable network and fast response time.
