Mobile collaborative applications are usually deployed in work scenarios where the existence of fixed communication infrastructure is hard to predict. For that reason, these applications use Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) to support communication between mobile users. The complexity involved in such communication infrastructures make that developers avoid developing software for mobile work scenarios. However, it is possible to provide a reusable abstraction of such communication mechanisms, in order to avoid that developers have to deal with low-level programming. This article presents HLMP API, which is an application programming interface that provides access to a HLMP implementation. This API is organized as a fully distributed mobile communication infrastructure, able to run on MANETs. This infrastructure provides an important set of services, which are required to support mobile collaboration. The reuse of these services allows developers to reduce the complexity, times and cost of these development projects.
