Network distributed computing: fitscapes and fallacies
-- Covers technologies, protocols, messaging, software, integration, collaboration, security, and more!
-- Includes coverage of XML, Web services, Spaces, Jini, and other key technologies.
-- Explains the 10 powerful megatrends driven by networked distributed computing.
Networked distributed computing (NDC) systems are driving an ongoing technological revolution that has already spawned the Internet and will soon transform the world into one ubiquitous, pervasive "information field." In Network Distributed Computing: Fitscapes and Fallacies, Max K. Goff reviews the field's crucial challenges, state-of-the-art solutions, and breathtaking future. Goff covers both the "trees" and the "forest" -- showing how NDC has evolved, where it's headed, and above all, what it all means. Goff covers: overcoming the 8 classic fallacies of distributed computing, enhancing collaboration, security, and dependability in networked computing environments, integrating wired and wireless networks and their key software challenges as well as messaging and communications protocols for distributed, interoperable systems.
