Introduction to Middleware : Web Services, Object Components, and Cloud Computing (Hardcover) (Letha
about this item
Middleware is a software layer that lies underneath applications and is used to allow multiple applications to interconnect, while hiding the complexities of the underlying network, operating system, and physical connections from the application programmer. This class-tested textbook provides a comparative view of the major paradigms and technologies used today in Middleware. The strengths and weaknesses of each approach are examined. Example implementations of each type of middleware are included in the Technology Review sections in each chapter and are used in the comparisons. Suggested programming assignments and homework problems are provided with each chapter.
