Push-based broadcasting in wireless information services is a very effective technique to disseminate information to a massive number of clients when the number of data items is small. When the database is large, however, it may be beneficial to integrate a pull-based (client-to-server) backchannel with the push-based broadcast approach, resulting in a hybrid data delivery. In this paper, we analyze the performance behavior of a predeclaration-based transaction processing, which was originally devised for a push-based data broadcast, in the hybrid data delivery through an extensive simulation. Simulation results show that the use of predeclaration-based transaction processing can provide significant performance improvement not only in a pure push data delivery, but also in a hybrid data delivery.
