I was reading about webmathematica but it has mentioned that it is for websites and mobile apps depend on wolfram alpha to get its work done. But since exact mathematica code doesn't work in alpha, it obviously puts serious limitations regarding the granularity of computation needed as it is at mercy of database.

So, is there some service that some app can be programmed that creates mathematica code based on parameters from front-end and it is sent as request object to some server where it can be computed and sent back as response object, hence giving the exact answer.

In simpler words, Mathematica running on server and executing client's code.

Maybe the title is misleading, but you can already use webMathematica with a mobile phone. For instance, have a look at the examples here. –  b.gatessucks May 3 '13 at 9:10
I have already seen this link and it refers to those websites that use it and some examples..it doesn't mention mobile anywhere. –  Rorschach May 3 '13 at 9:32
webMathematica is completely independent of Wolfram|Alpha. Please read this, and, if you are entitled, get the webMathematica amateur yourself, study it for a few weeks or months, and then you see how it all works. –  Rolf Mertig May 3 '13 at 9:40
I thought of doing this but I thought if someone has clear idea already in case..thanks –  Rorschach May 3 '13 at 9:56
Sorry to insist, but can you use your mobile phone to check out the examples in the link and see if/how they work for you ? –  b.gatessucks May 3 '13 at 10:25
