Large-scale, Component-based Development
-- Providing valuable insights on the current directions of enterprise-scale solutions in the Internet age.
-- Best practices: Choosing technologies, defining architectures, modeling applications, managing component-based projects, and more.
-- The future of component development: translating today's R&D into tomorrow's real-world enterprise development solutions.
In this definitive book, the R&D leader at one of the world's top software companies presents a complete conceptual framework for Internet-centered application development -- and practical insights into the component technologies that enable it. Alan Brown starts with a concise overview of the e-Business revolution: its business drivers and technological enablers. He offers a rare, holistic perspective on diverse technologies such as TCP/IP, HTTP and CORBA/IIOP -- showing how they enable distributed access at lower cost, with greater flexibility, responsiveness, and user-friendliness. Next, he introduces "best practices" component-based development techniques that deliver on the promise of reduced cycle times, improved quality, and greater reuse. Finally, he previews future directions in component-based development, showing how today's research projects are likely to impact tomorrow's enterprise scale application development. Endorsed by object/component pioneers such as Bertrand Meyer, this book will stand as the "book of record" for anyone intending to deploy Internet-focused, multi-tiered enterprise systems.
