Message Passing Server Internals / Edition 1

With the emergence of the Internet and heterogeneous computing environments, message-passing technology has gone from obscure to mainstream. Cell phones, pagers, PDAs, and browser-based network clients have made messaging technology accessible to everyone.

This book targets developers interested in implementation, engineers migrating into communications, and network administrators interested in deployment issues. This book is an extensive guide to constructing a fully functional message-passing engine, complete with deployment and management tools.

With short, step-by-step tutorials, Bill Blunden moves smoothly from explaining basic theory to designing and implementing high-level subsystems. Background material is presented in a way that will appeal to novice engineers, but the sophisticated approach will make advanced developers feel right at home. The companion CD contains source code for original implementation, in addition to system management utilities.


  • Nuts-and-bolts construction techniques for message-passing servers
  • Short tutorials that build from basics to top-tier components
  • Author known for clarity and clean code
  • CD-ROM with source code for complete messaging system, testing, deployment, and management tools
