Distributed object-oriented platforms are increasingly important over wireless environments to provide frameworks for collaborative computations and for managing a large pool of distributed resources. For beyond 3G environments, distributed object-oriented platforms can provide the framework and toolkits for application developments with heterogeneous wireless environments. In this paper, we present our support for Java RMI over Bluetooth, GPRS, and WLAN environments. We propose a software mechanism which can be used to dynamically adapt RMI over different networks with optimization-related strategies. This is an important middleware for component communications. We will show how to employ Java Dynamic Proxy and exception handling techniques to help perform roaming and resource schedulings among heterogeneous wireless environments. Java Grande benchmarks are used to demonstrate that our RMI implementations over GPRS, WLAN, and Bluetooth environments are effective in supporting parallel and distributed control of Java layers over heterogeneous wireless environments.
