Javatm in Distributed Systems: Concurrency, Distribution and Persistence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's complex software systems, such as Internet communications, e-commerce or virtual private networks all depend on distributed applications. Developers have to contend with diverse hardware platforms, remote communication over networks, and system failures. Fortunately, the Java language helps to reduce the complexity of distributed systems via its platform-independence and its built-in mechanisms for distributed programming.

The first part of this book is a tutorial guide to distributed programming in the Java environment, showing how building blocks from threads to Jini can help developers to fulfil Sun's vision, that 'the Network is the Computer'. The second part focuses on aspects that are still challenging researchers: the integration of concurrency, distribution, and persistence.

Highlights of the book include:

* A clear tutorial introduction that focuses specifically on Java's role in building distributed applications.

* Coverage includes threads & sockets, RMI, CORBA, Voyager, Mobile agents, JDBC, object-oriented databases, Java spaces and Jini.

* Includes advanced chapters on the cutting edge of Java language development, including the author's own proposed Dejay (Distributed Java), an open-source project that offers a unified approach to concurrency, distribution and persistence.

The book is aimed at developers wishing to deepen their knowledge of Java in distributed applications. Students taking courses on Distributed Systems/Objects will also find it invaluable, as will researchers on state-of the art developments in distributed Java.

Book News Annotation:

Both a tutorial and a research guide, this book covers the basics of distributed programming and more advanced problems like the integration of currency, distribution, and persistence. Introductory materials focus specifically on Java's role in building distributed applications. Advanced chapters include material on Java's language development, including Boger's (University of Hamburg) own open-source project. Other topics discussed are threads and sockets, RMI, CORBA, Voyager, Mobile agents, dDBC, object-oriented databases, Java spaces, and Jini.

Synopsis:

Large and complex software systems, such as Internet applications, depend on distributed applications. Although Java has helped reduce the complexity of distributed systems, developers still have to contend with diverse hardware platforms, remote communication over networks, and system failures.

Java in Distributed Systems provides a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of Java in distributed applications. Beginning with a tutorial guide to distributed programming in the Java environment, it shows you how building blocks from threads to Jini can help you to fulfil Sun's vision, that 'the Network is the Computer'. It then goes on to focus on aspects that are still challenging researchers such as concurrency, distribution, and persistence.

Key Features:

- One of the few books to focus specifically on Java for building distributed applications

- Coverage includes threads & sockets, RMI, CORBA, Voyager, Mobile agents, JDBC, object-oriented databases, Java spaces and Jini

- Includes advanced chapters on the cutting edge of Java language development, including the author's own proposed Dejay (Distributed Java), an open-source project that offers a unified approach to concurrency, distribution and persistence
