"Java Distributed Computing" gives intermediate to advanced Java
developers a jumpstart into one of the hottest areas of systems
desig--distributed computing with Java.
It covers Java's RMI (Remote Method Invocation) facility and CORBA
(Common Object Request Brokerage the industry-standard component
protocol from UNIX); it describes how to design protocols to build
message passing systems; discusses critical issues such as how to use
Java's security facilities, how to write multi-threaded servers, and
more. The author pays special attention to distributed data systems,
collaboration, and applications that have high bandwidth requirements.
Computing" provides an overview of the potential
pitfalls programmers may face and offers practical solutions for
Intranet, Internet, client/server, and other distributed applications.
