Ubiquitous service provision demands a flexible, low complexity and small foot-print platform that can perform in heterogeneous devices. In this paper, we describe the deployment of JADE as a ubiquitous electronic market platform for trading of adaptation services. We then statistically measure JADE's transport protocol efficiency over wireless WAN networks vis-a-vis traditional remote technologies. Our results show that the use of an electronic market results in a linear rise in download time as file sizes increases while using plain message passing technique results in a sub-exponential rise. We have benchmarked our results with working devices over real networks.
