This paper describes a Web proxy architecture called WebPADS, which is in short for "Web proxy for actively deployable services". WebPADS is developed to enhance Web applications running on wireless networks. WebPADS provides mechanisms that automatically locate and configure a flexible and adaptive wireless Web proxy. In addition, it provides a framework that facilitates the development of add-on services, which can be actively deployed and migrated across Web proxies, in order to adapt to the changing wireless environment.
