The real-time applications deployed in MANETs are affected by the mobile node's power constraints and the real-time database service provider's system stability. In this paper, we aim to handle the time-constrained requests within their deadline despite of the mobile nodes limited energy. We propose a cross layer service selection protocol which ensures both timelines and energy efficiency. The proposed solution discards low-power route, overhead route and overloaded service provider. We evaluate the performance of our proposed protocol using the NS2. Simulation results show that the protocol decreases the deadline packet's miss ratio and reduces the energy consumption.
