About this Unit
This unit covers the concepts, design, and programming of distributed systems. It builds on basic network communication protocols (specifically IP) to cover client server programming using both the system level socket interface and remote procedure calls. It also examines large scale distributed system architectures particularly those based on distributed objects and considers the complexities inherent in distributed transactions. Key concepts covered include data and algorithmic distribution, idempotent protocols, stateless and statefull servers, and distributed system transparency. Illustrative case studies are included.
