The huge growth of the mobile devices market and the fast-changing requirements of mobile users, increase the need to develop native Web Service clients that can be deployed on both mobile and desktop devices. Existing work attempts to address heterogeneity, in order to simplify the development of device-aware Web Services. This paper defines the Presentation Modelling Language, which allows defining clients as graphical user interface models that are then transformed to platform-specific code. Also, the Web Services Description Language is used to define and generate the proxy classes that enable service communication from the generated clients. A functional device-aware Web Service is developed, showcasing the high-degree of automation achieved and the multi-platform nature of the approach. © 2011 IEEE.
