Web services continue to gain an increased popularity in the Information and Telecommunication sector. However, despite the recent advancements in mobile devices and wireless technology, direct implementation of SOAP-based Web Services on mobile devices is still a challenge due to the fact that mobile devices are still resources-constrained compared to stationary dedicated servers and workstations by their limited processing power, limited memory as well as limited bandwidth and intermittent nature of wireless connectivity. This paper proposes a lightweight framework for hosting and consuming Web services on mobile devices while considering their natural limitations and constraints. The proposed framework is based on the existing Web services and mobile devices technology standards. The framework fully conforms to the REST architectural style design principles to facilitate the provision and access to Web services hosted by mobile devices.
