A problem small with devices, such as the iPAQ Pocket PC, is that their small amounts of memory limits the number of applications that can be stored on them. A simple solution to this problem is to have applications load when needed and then unload when not in use. In this paper, we describe how to repackage Eclipse's OSGi plug-ins with some custom software to provide a dynamic application loader and unloader for the iPAQ Pocket PC.
