Overview

As legacy systems continue to serve as the backbone for corporations, network engineers, IS managers, and architects face an enormous challenge - how to integrate modern networking platforms and applications with legacy systems to create a single computing environment that efficiently, effectively, and securely serves the organization's needs.

At last, with this comprehensive book by a pioneer in the networking and application development field, there is one single guide to this formidable task. A complete overview of major networking technologies and application development components is provided. And rather than just summarizing how various technologies work, the author provides deeper insight into enterprise-wide design, performance, security, reliability, and operational implications.

Network engineers will more easily isolate problems to the network, the application, or both. IS Managers will save invaluable time and resources by better identifying optimal integration strategies and existing trouble spots. Software managers will design more seamless maintainable applications. Architects will find a wealth of information needed to plan the future. Networks and their applications will be designed together rather than in isolation, producing a far better user experience while reducing cost and improving managability. Topics covered include:

  • TCP/IP, IP routing, OSPF, BGPv4, IGRP/EIGRP, IPv6 and IPv4
  • Security: Kerberos, public key cryptography, X.509 certificates and certificate authorities, SSL, IPSEC, and SASL.
  • Objects: CORBA, Microsoft COM/DCOM, and Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS)
  • Directory Services: Windows NT 4, NT 5 Active Directory, NDS, LDAP, and X.500
  • Microsoft's key technologies and architectures, including WOSA, SPI, WinSock, ADO, UDA, ODBC, MAPI, and mainframe integration Novell NetWare protocols, networking techniques, SAP and the bindery, NDS, TCP/IP integration, and interoperability for versions 3.x through 5.
  • IBM technologies, including SNA, SDLC, CICS, Token Ring legacy integration, and IBM mainframe integration with web technologies and TCP/IP
  • Open Group DCE and RPC
