David Linthicum s Guide to Client Server and Intranet Development
"Take Linthicum's warnings seriously . . . he's been through the fire!"-Rusty Weston, Senior Editor, PC Week. A renowned client/server expert provides state-of-the-art techniques for building client/server and intranet applications. In this valuable guide, client/server guru David Linthicum shows developers how to use cutting-edge development tools and techniques to build real-life business applications. The book provides step-by-step procedures for creating these applications, explains how to select the software and hardware that's right for your projects, and even provides guidelines on estimating project costs. This unique book covers client/server and network architectures, types of middleware, and development tools so you can determine the right approach to building a client/server or intranet system. Linthicum assesses dozens of tools by type, features, and specialization and provides detailed, step-by-step guidelines for creating the perfect solution. You'll learn how to form and test your final system and find expert tips every developer and application architect needs to work more effectively. In addition to providing recommendations, warnings, and case studies, Dave covers: * The latest client/server development tools and methods * Two-tier, three-tier, and multi-tier client/server development models and related technologies * Repository-driven development, programming languages, database connectivity, and middleware * The use of CORBA-compliant ORBs and the inner workings of Microsoft Active Platform * Next-generation application partitioning tools like Forte and Dynasty.
Enterprise Application Integration
Dealing with the concepts behind a vendor's products, this a guide for IT managers on how to ensure the IT infrastructure matches the need of the enterprise, and which procedures should be followed to ensure this happens.
Distributed Network Systems
Both authors have taught the course of “Distributed Systems” for many years in the respective schools. During the teaching, we feel strongly that “Distributed systems” have evolved from traditional “LAN” based distributed systems towards “Internet based” systems. Although there exist many excellent textbooks on this topic, because of the fast development of distributed systems and network programming/protocols, we have difficulty in finding an appropriate textbook for the course of “distributed systems” with orientation to the requirement of the undergraduate level study for today’s distributed technology. Specifically, from - to-date concepts, algorithms, and models to implementations for both distributed system designs and application programming. Thus the philosophy behind this book is to integrate the concepts, algorithm designs and implementations of distributed systems based on network programming. After using several materials of other textbooks and research books, we found that many texts treat the distributed systems with separation of concepts, algorithm design and network programming and it is very difficult for students to map the concepts of distributed systems to the algorithm design, prototyping and implementations. This book intends to enable readers, especially postgraduates and senior undergraduate level, to study up-to-date concepts, algorithms and network programming skills for building modern distributed systems. It enables students not only to master the concepts of distributed network system but also to readily use the material introduced into implementation practices.
Guide to Cloud Computing for Business and Technology Managers
Guide to Cloud Computing for Business and Technology Managers: From Distributed Computing to Cloudware Applications unravels the mystery of cloud computing and explains how it can transform the operating contexts of business enterprises. It provides a clear understanding of what cloud computing really means, what it can do, and when it is practical to use. Addressing the primary management and operation concerns of cloudware, including performance, measurement, monitoring, and security, this pragmatic book: Introduces the enterprise applications integration (EAI) solutions that were a first step toward enabling an integrated enterprise Details service-oriented architecture (SOA) and related technologies that paved the road for cloudware applications Covers delivery models like IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, and deployment models like public, private, and hybrid clouds Describes Amazon, Google, and Microsoft cloudware solutions and services, as well as those of several other players Demonstrates how cloud computing can reduce costs, achieve business flexibility, and sharpen strategic focus Unlike customary discussions of cloud computing, Guide to Cloud Computing for Business and Technology Managers: From Distributed Computing to Cloudware Applications emphasizes the key differentiator—that cloud computing is able to treat enterprise-level services not merely as discrete stand-alone services, but as Internet-locatable, composable, and repackageable building blocks for generating dynamic real-world enterprise business processes.
Next Generation Application Integration
* *Defines Web services and integration and the relationship between EAI and Web services *Outlines the types of Web services integration from standards, implementation to enabling technologies *Features Web services integration scenarios and case studies
Java Connector Architecture
Java Connector Architecture (JCA) presents the JCA and identifies the scope in which a JCA-based adapter operates. The book quickly moves to the design methodologies employed in adapter using the JCA. The book then progresses to information about testing and deploying adapters in a production environment. Java Connector Architecture defines a development methodology and suggests analysis and design patterns, which are useful both for building connectors to legacy applications and for designing adapters for new applications.
Management of Information Technology
A comprehensive text focused on the fundamental principles and practices necessary for managers to succeed in modern information-centric organizations. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Die Software heutiger Unternehmen besteht zum größten Teil aus Altsystemen, die zwischen fünf und dreißig Jahren alt sein können. In der heutigen Softwareliteratur wird vorwiegend die Schaffung und Konzeption von neuen Systemen behandelt. Ziel dieses Buches ist es dagegen, eine Darstellung der Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten und Strategien für die Altsysteme aufzuzeigen. Dabei beschäftigt sich der Autor auch mit folgenden Fragen: Wie kann die Wartung besser werden? Muss man wirklich ablösen? Wie funktioniert der Ersatz durch Standardsoftware?
Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise
Massive, disruptive change is coming to IT as software as a service (SaaS), SOA, mashups, Web 2.0, and cloud computing truly come of age. Now, one of the world’s leading IT innovators explains what it all means—coherently, thoroughly, and authoritatively. Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, world-renowned expert David S. Linthicum explains why the days of managing IT organizations as private fortresses will rapidly disappear as IT inevitably becomes a global community. He demonstrates how to run IT when critical elements of customer, product, and business data and processes extend far beyond the firewall—and how to use all that information to deliver real-time answers about everything from an individual customer’s credit to the location of a specific cargo container. Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise offers a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges associated with this new world—and offers a step-by-step program for getting there with maximum return on investment and minimum risk. Using multiple examples, Linthicum Reviews the powerful cost, value, and risk-related drivers behind the move to cloud computing—and explains why the shift will accelerate Explains the technical underpinnings, supporting technologies, and best-practice methods you’ll need to make the transition Helps you objectively assess the promise of cloud computing and SOA for your organization, quantify value, and make the business case Walks you through evaluating your existing IT infrastructure and finding your most cost-effective, safest path to the “cloud” Shows how to choose the right candidate data, services, and processes for your cloud computing initiatives Guides you through building disruptive infrastructure and next-generation process platforms Helps you bring effective, high-value governance to the clouds If you’re ready to begin driving real competitive advantage from cloud computing, this book is the start-to-finish roadmap you need to make it happen.
