Java in Distributed Systems provides a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of Java in distributed applications. Beginning with a tutorial guide to distributed programming in the Java environment, it shows you how building blocks from threads to Jini can help you to fulfil Sun's vision, that 'the Network is the Computer'. It then goes on to focus on aspects that are still challenging researchers such as concurrency, distribution, and persistence.
- One of the few books to focus specifically on Java for building distributed applications
- Coverage includes threads & sockets, RMI, CORBA, Voyager, Mobile agents, JDBC, object-oriented databases, Java spaces and Jini
- Includes advanced chapters on the cutting edge of Java language development, including the author's own proposed Dejay (Distributed Java), an open-source project that offers a unified approach to concurrency, distribution and persistence
