Description - Client/Server Survival Guide by Robert Orfali

The no.1 Client/Server book, now completely updated and expanded! "It's savvy, informative, and entertaining as anything you are likely to read on the subject. Client/server isn't one technology but many- remote SQL, TP, message-oriented groupware, distributed objects, and so on. Like the proverbial blind man feeling the elephant, most of us have a hard time seeing the whole picture. The authors succeed brilliantly in mapping the elephant."-John Udell, Byte, "Winner, JOLT Product Excellence Award."-Software Development "The scope and depth of topics covered in the Guide, with its straightforward and often humorous delivery, make this book required reading for anyone who deals with computers in today's corporate environment."-Bob Gallagher, PC Week "Absolutely the finest book on client/server on the market today. It's got great advice, and is well written and fun to read."-Richard Finkelstein The critics agree-this is the best source for anyone looking to understand and make informed decisions about client/server technology. In this Third Edition of their award-winning book, authors Orfali, Harkey, and Edwards combine detailed technical explanations with their unique brand of offbeat humor, clever cartoons, controversial soapboxes, and witty quotes to inform, educate, and entertain. This information-packed Survival Guide takes you on a sweeping tour of the world of client/server. From operating systems and communications, to application servers that incorporate database, transaction processing, groupware, and objects, to the Internet and the World Wide Web and their role in the new generation of client/server and object management, this book covers it all. In their other lives: Robert Orfali and Dan Harkey head San Jose State University's Client/Server and Distributed Objects Master's program and lab. Dan also works for IBM as a distributed objects consultant. Jeri Edwards is Vice President of Strategy and Product Planning at BEA Systems. Wiley Computer Publishing Timely. Practical. Reliable.
