Multicast Sockets by Kevin C. Almeroth

Book Description

"Multicast Sockets: Practical Guide for Programmers" is a hands-on, application-centric approach to multicasting (as opposed to a network-centric one) that is filled with examples, ideas, and experimentation. Each example builds on the last to introduce multicast concepts, frameworks, and APIs in an engaging manner that does not burden the reader with lots of theory and jargon. The book is an introduction to multicasting but assumes that the reader has a background in network programming and is proficient in C or Java. After reading the book, you will have a firm grasp on how to write a multicast program. Features include: author team of instructor and application programmer is reflected in this rich instructional and practical approach to the subject material; only book available that provides a clear, concise, application-centric approach to programming multicast applications and covers several languages-C, Java, and C# on the .NET platform; covers important topics like service models, testing reachability, and addressing and scoping; and, includes numerous examples and exercises for programmers and students to test what they have learned.
