Providing adaptive web services from mobile hosts is a new approach in mobile web services to cope resource scarcity of mobile network environment. This approach is explored through investigating some mechanisms to allow continuous and reliable service provisioning. However, there is a clear limitation in terms complexity and size of the services that may be executed on mobile hosts. In this paper, Simple Partial Offloading mechanism is studied to facilitate mobile web service adaptation through distributing the execution of mobile web services and modeling the transfer of required location-based information. The distribution can be classified into Forward or Bounce offloading while the transfer modeling is based on either Frontend or Backend scheme. Hence, four distinct types of mobile web service frameworks have been implemented; each of these architectures represents a different strategy for achieving adaptive and distributed web services. The paper describes the four prototypes that allow performance evaluation using resource intensive applications. The results presented show that basing distributed mobile hosted services on Backend Bounce Offload strategy is more suitable for mobile network environment.
