For programmers already familiar with Java, this book offers new techniques on how to develop distributed applications. Although it discusses four paradigms--low-level Sockets, Remote Method Invocation, CORBA, and Mobile Agents--this book does not favor any one of these technologies. It also allows the reader to judge the easiest approach for a particular domain of applications.
A Java specialist (whose credits include ) introduces distributed computer programming, and comparatively covers popular approaches for developing real-world applications including sockets, RMI, CORBA, Caffeine, and the new paradigm of mobile software agents. Includes print and online references, and a private Internet forum for book purchasers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
