Book Description

This book is a part of The Java Enterprise CD Bookshelf.

Java Distributed Computing discusses how to design and write distributed applications in Java. It covers Java's RMI (Remote Method Invocation) facility and CORBA, but it doesn't stop there; it tells you how to design your own protocols to build message passing systems and discusses how to use Java's security facilities, how to write multithreaded servers, and more. It pays special attention to distributed data systems, collaboration, and applications that have high bandwidth requirements. In the future, distributed computing can only become more important.Java Distributed Computing provides a broad introduction to the problems you'll face and the solutions you'll find as you write distributed computing applications. It covers:

  • Introduction to Distributed Computing
  • Networking Basics
  • Distributed Objects (Overview of CORBA and RMI)
  • Threads
  • Security
  • Message-Passing Systems
  • Distributed Data Systems (Databases)
  • Bandwidth-Limited Applications
  • Collaborative Systems
