Transaction Processing: Concepts and Techniques (Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The key to client/server computing.

Transaction processing techniques are deeply ingrained in the fields of

databases and operating systems and are used to monitor, control and update

information in modern computer systems. This book will show you how large,

distributed, heterogeneous computer systems can be made to work reliably.

Using transactions as a unifying conceptual framework, the authors show how

to build high-performance distributed systems and high-availability

applications with finite budgets and risk.

The authors provide detailed explanations of why various problems occur as

well as practical, usable techniques for their solution. Throughout the book,

examples and techniques are drawn from the most successful commercial and

research systems. Extensive use of compilable C code fragments demonstrates

the many transaction processing algorithms presented in the book. The book

will be valuable to anyone interested in implementing distributed systems

or client/server architectures.

Book News Annotation:

For advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and for professional programmers who either want to understand what their transaction processing system is doing to them (e.g., a CICS/DB2 user) or who need a basic reference text, this pragmatic volume shows how to apply transaction concepts to distributed systems and how to use them to build high-performance, high availability applications with finite budgets and risk. Assumes a reading knowledge of SQL and C.
