Software Engineering für verteilte Anwendungen: Mechanismen by Professor Dr. Max Mühlhäuser, Dr. Alexander Schill (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Max Mühlhäuser, Dr. Alexander Schill (auth.)

Gegenstand dieses Buches ist die Entwicklung komplexer verteilter Anwendungsprogramme. Thema ist nicht, wie in den traditionellen B}chern }berverteilte DV-Systeme, die Entwicklung oder der Betrieb von Rechnernetzen, sondern deren Einsatz bei der Entwicklung verteilter Anwendungen. In Bereichen wie B}roautomatisierung und Produktionsautomation oder bei Firmen, deren Abl{ufe stark auf internationale Weitverkehrsnetze abgest}tzt sind (Fluggesellschaften, internationale Broker-Firmen), spiegeln die im Buch behandelten Fragestellungen schon heute die Probleme der Anwendungsentwickler wider; in vielen anderen Industriezweigen zeichnet sich die Notwendigkeit komplexer verteilter Anwendungen durch den zunehmenden Zwang zur Verflechtung und zur Automatisierung bereits ab. Ein Blick auf die in der Industrie eingesetzten Hilfsmittel zeigt jedoch, da~ diese f}r die erw{hnten komplexen Anwendungen nicht mehr ad{quat sind. Das Buch richtet sich in erster Linie an Dozenten, Studenten und Wissenschaftler im Bereich des software program Engineering, sowie an Softwareentwickler in der Praxis.

Concurrent Prolog - Vol. 2: Collected Papers by Ehud Y. Shapiro

By Ehud Y. Shapiro

Concurrent Prolog brings jointly for the 1st time descriptions of the main concurrent common sense programming languages proposed thus far for destiny parallel computers. specifically, it describes the concurrent good judgment programming language Flat Concurrent Prolog, a complete and radical method of parallel computing that's in line with an easy foundation.

After surveying fresh learn in concurrent good judgment programming languages, those volumes tackle all the proper features of making any such parallel desktop method. They examine how platforms programming and the implementation of parallel algorithms might be conducted with this language; how complex application improvement concepts could be utilized; how one can embed different high-level languages in it; and the way to enforce this language successfully on sequential and parallel desktops. the result of those investigations recommend that Flat Concurrent Prolog can function a general-purpose high-level desktop language for parallel computers.

Ehud Y. Shapiro is Senior Scientist, division of utilized arithmetic, Weizmann Institute of technology. Concurrent Prolog is integrated in his good judgment Programming sequence. a lot of the learn describe within the publication was once motivated by means of the 5th iteration venture and cross-fertilization among the authors and ICOT.
