Editorial Reviews

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)
If you’re interested in distributed systems using remote-method invocation or CORBA, then Distributed Programming with Java makes a great guide to the subject. It’s filled with practical examples, and good coverage of the theory. the RMI and CORBA coverage alone makes it worthwhile as a reference, and if you have an interest in mobile agents that comes as a bonus.
. . . a nice short book on developing distributed Java applications for the Java developer who is unfamiliar with distributed application development. If you are new to distributed application development, the book offers a nice start into the area, with a good introduction to Mobile Agents and Voyager not frequently described anywhere.
