Systems Application Architecture: Common Programming Interface
PTR Prentice Hall, 1993 - Computers - 397 pages
Best-selling author James Martin once again imparts his vast knowledge of computers to offer you an expert, in-depth, and comprehensive exploration of Systems Application Architecture. Martin recognizes the potential of SAA to become the standard that defines a universal computing environment in which applications can be developed without regard to the underlying hardware or operating systems. In this, the fourth volume in a series, you'll explore the Common Programming Interface (CPI) component of SAA.
Part I introduces the characteristics of the various thirdand fourth-generation languages that are included under the SAA umbrella and that can be used for creating SAA-compliant applications.
Part II details the various application programming interfaces that are defined by CPI, describes those programming interfaces that are defined by CPI, and describes those programming interfaces that SAA computing applications can use to access files, databases, and repositories.
Part III describes the programming interfaces that can be used to access SAA networking facilities.
Part IV discusses the programming interfaces that are used by a computing application to implement the user interface.
The first volume of the SAA series examines the Common User Access (CUA) interface that defines the way in which an application developer creates an SAA-compliant user interface. The next two volumes focus on the Common Communications Support (CCS) interface. The distributed applications volume takes a top-down approach and examines in depth the high-level data object formats, data stream structures, and high-level application services supported by CCS for both SNA and OSI environments. The companion volume, on network infrastructure, also concentrates on CCS, taking a bottom-up approach and describing in detail the data link controls, network services, and session services that are used to connect an SAA processor to computer networks.
