Client/server and distributed technologies have made great strides since their emergence in the late 1980s to become very popular in the IT industry today. This book illustrates techniques not only for designing GUI client/server applications, but also for managing complex application environments containing both legacy and new applications. Topics covered in this book include - The what, when and how of the three tier client/server model - Coupling and dependency: key design factors in distributed systems - Distributed application design alternatives for the enterprise - The Federated application structure for integrating the applications of the enterprise - A real-life case study of a major financial institution - Systems Architects and senior technical staff Project Managers and Software Engineers involved with or interested in client/server computing, and final year undergraduate and postgraduate students will find this book useful.
Many applications follow the distributed computing paradigm, in which parts of the application are executed on different network-interconnected computers. The extension of these applications in terms of number of users or size has led to an unprecedented increase in the scale of the infrastructure that supports them. Large-Scale Distributed Computing and Applications: Models and Trends offers a coherent and realistic image of today's research results in large scale distributed systems, explains state-of-the-art technological solutions for the main issues regarding large scale distributed systems, and presents the benefits of using large scale distributed systems and the development process of scientific and commercial distributed applications.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Engineering Distributed Objects, EDO 2000, held in November 2000 in Davis, California, USA.The 15 revised full papers presented together with session surveys were carefully reviewed and selected from 30 submissions. The book presents topical sections on middleware selection, resource management, architectural reasoning, distributed communication, advanced transactions, and service integration.
A wide range of modern computer applications require the performance and flexibility of parallel and distributed systems. Better software support is required if the technical advances in these systems are to be fully exploited by commerce and industry. This involves the provision of specialised techniques and tools as well as the integration of standard software engineering methods. This book will reflect current advances in this area, and will address issues of theory and practice with contributions from academia and industry. It is the aim of the book to provide a focus for information on this developing which will be of use to both researchers and practitioners.
This book concentrates on the relationships between coordination technology and business application requirements, introducing general elements of a cooperative infrastructure that allows for collaborative applications.
FIDJI 2004 was an international forum for researchers and practitioners int- estedinthe advancesin,andapplicationsof,softwareengineeringfordistributed application development.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Scientific Engineering of Distributed Java Applications, FIDJI 2003, held in Luxembourg-Kirchberg, Luxembourg in November 2003. The 213 revised full papers presented together with abstracts of two invited contributions were carefully selected during two round of reviewing and revision from 29 submissions. Among the topics addressed are Java-enabled service gateways, mobility in distributed settings, XML, embedded Java software, interception services, mobile agents, error management, software model engineering, distributed composite objects, cooperative applications, distributed mobile applications, service-based software architectures, and distributed Java programs.
FIDJI 2002 was an international forum for researchers and practitioners in- rested in the advances in, and applications of, software engineering for distri- ted application development. Concerning the technologies, the workshop focused on “Java-related” technologies. It was an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this workshop were reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance was based primarily on the originality and contribution. We selected for these postworkshop proceedings 16 papers amongst 33 submitted, two tutorials, and two keynotes. FIDJI 2002 was aimed at promoting a scienti?c approach to software engin- ring. The scope of the workshop included the following topics: – design of distributed Java applications – Java-related technologies – software and system architecture engineering and development methodo- gies – development methodologies for UML – development methodologies for reliable distributed systems – component-based development methodologies – management of evolutions/iterations in the analysis, design, implementation, and test phases – dependability support during system lifecycle – managing inconsistencies during application development – atomicity and exception handling in system development – software architectures, frameworks, and design patterns for developing d- tributed systems – integration of formal techniques in the development process – formal analysis and grounding of modeling notation and techniques (e. g.
This module of the handbook discusses the management and security issues.

The EUNICE (European Network of Universities and Companies in Information and Communication technology) (http://www.eunice-forum.org) mission is to jointly - velop and promote the best and most compatible standard of European higher edu- tion and professionals in ICT by increasing scientific and technical knowledge in the field of ICT and developing their applications in the economy. The EUNICE Wo- shop is an annual event. This year the workshop was sponsored by IFIP TC 6 WG 6.6: Management of Networks and Distributed Systems. Eight years ago, the seventh edition of the EUNICE workshop took place in Tro- heim with the topic “Adaptable Networks and Teleservices.” Since then “adaptability” has become a topic which is found in most ICT conferences. The concept teleservices, which is a telecommunication domain concept from the 1980s, has been lifted out of the telecom community and is now found with new and sometimes mysterious names such as service–oriented architecture and cloud computing.
In the race to compete in today’s fast-moving markets, large enterprises are busy adopting new technologies for creating new products, processes, and business models. But one obstacle on the road to digital transformation is placing too much emphasis on technology, and not enough on the types of processes technology enables. What if different lines of business could build their own services and applications—and decision-making was distributed rather than centralized? This report explores the concept of a digital business platform as a way of empowering individual business sectors to act on data in real time. Much innovation in a digital enterprise will increasingly happen at the edge, whether it involves business users (from marketers to data scientists) or IoT devices. To facilitate the process, your core IT team can provide these sectors with the digital tools they need to innovate quickly. This report explores: Key cultural and organizational changes for developing business capabilities through cross-functional product teams A platform for integrating applications, data sources, business partners, clients, mobile apps, social networks, and IoT devices Creating internal API programs for building innovative edge services in low-code or no-code environments Tools including Integration Platform as a Service, Application Platform as a Service, and Integration Software as a Service The challenge of integrating microservices and serverless architectures Event-driven architectures for processing and reacting to events in real time You’ll also learn about a complete pervasive integration solution as a core component of a digital business platform to serve every audience in your organization.
