Overview

This book is a comprehensive guide to Java distributed computing. It assumes the reader is an experienced Java programming, but has little experience with network programming and distributed objects. This book covers networking, distributed computing architectures, advanced Java facilities, security, data management, and specific distributed computing techniques including sockets, Remote Method Invocation (RMI), Java servlets, Microsoft's Distributed Component Model (DCOM), and the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). This book covers all these protocols, gives advice on when to use each protocol, and demonstrates how they work (or don't work) together.

  • Comprehensive and professional approach to building Java distributed objects with CORBA/IIOP, RMI, IDL, and COM/DCOM
  • Extremely practical, hands-on book that contains concise descriptions of the theory, complete applications, and thousands of lines of proven, real-world Java code
  • Authors Bill McCarty and Luke Cassady-Dorion have 28 years of combined professional programming experience in the field of distributed objects

I am still reading Java Distributed Objects as I write this note. I actually got it 3 days ago as I take a graduate course in Java for Distributed Programming and felt overwhelmed in this course.

I haven¿t left the book since I got it and it already cleared a lot of subjects that I am wrestling with for several months.

I love this book and appreciate immensely the authors¿ great contribution to me.

I never wrote an evaluation on a book, as one never has the time to use this form of saying thank you. Thanking that one made such effort to contribute to you, usually for a price of dinner or less. I decided to make an exception this time.

So why I am I throwing an exception now?

Before I bought the book I looked at it briefly at the bookstore and thought that it will be helpful. Than I got on line and read a very negative review by one reader. I almost didn¿t buy the book as it was so negative and that would have been a huge loss for me as the book really pooled up from a very frustrating sense of being completely overwhelmed by the subject. I am not sure what motivated the other reader to be so negative. I usually feel a lot of respect to an author who goes through the immense birthing pains to produce a book that intends to contribute to others. Yeah he gets paid some but I can hardly envision anybody retiring from one of these tech books.

So for what ever it worth. I thank these authors for producing this book. It helps me a lot and I appreciate it!
