Broadcasting in wireless mobile computing environments is an effective technique to disseminate information to a massive number of clients equipped with powerful, battery operated devices. To conserve the usage of energy, which is scarce resource, the information to be broadcast must be organized so that the client can selectively tune in at the desired portion of the broadcast. In this paper, the energy efficient behavior of a predeclaration-based transaction processing in mobile broadcast environments is examined. The analytical studies have been performed to evaluate the effectiveness of our method. The analysis has shown that our predeclaration-based transaction processing with selective tuning ability can provide significant performance improvement of battery life, while retaining a low access time, in mobile broadcast environments.
