9780130871336: Distributed Application Programming in C++ (with CD-ROM)

As software becomes increasingly distributed, high-quality infrastructure becomes ever more important. Precisely written, replete with advanced code examples, and based on Randall Maddox' extensive experience teaching advanced C++, this book gives working C++ developers the insights and sophisticated techniques they need to build superior software infrastructure. Maddox begins by introducing the context required to support a distributed Web application in a Unix environment. He then presents the utility classes that illustrate crucial design and implementation issues and serve as building blocks for a distributed software architecture. Coverage includes concrete data types, templates, containers, namespaces, error handling, and an automated solution for the hazards of dynamic memory allocation. Maddox reviews C++ program startup and memory usage in detail, laying the groundwork for a full of understanding of multiprocessing, multithreading, and interprocess communication. Unlike most advanced C++ books, Distributed Application Programming in C++ goes beyond coding, introducing superior strategies for enterprise software development. Maddox presents key design/implementation tradeoffs, managing source code organization, build-time issues, the run-time environment, and more. For all professional developers who want to master the use of advanced C++ features in real-world distributed applications.

Distributed Application Programming in C++ brings together key techniques and insights every C++ developer needs to build robust, reliable, enterprise-class Web and distributed applications. Precisely written, and full of industrial-strength examples, this book focuses on the application infrastructure code that many books ignore — but is utterly crucial to the success of any large-scale application. Drawing on his extensive experience teaching advanced C++, Randall A. Maddox covers all this, and more:


* Essential infrastructure for distributed Web applications in UNIX environments
* Key design and implementation tradeoffs in large-scale distributed development
* Concrete data types, templates, containers, namespaces, and error handling
* Program startup and execution environments
* Improving the reliability of C++ dynamic memory allocation
* Effective data sharing within and between computers
* Distributed architectures: Web-based application frameworks, RPC, CORBA, and other alternatives

Unlike many advanced C++ books, Distributed Application Programming in C++ goes beyond coding, introducing optimal strategies for enterprise software development. You'll find best-practices approaches for organizing source code, managing build-time and runtime, and more. If you're serious about using C++ for distributed and Web development, this book delivers the solutions you're looking for. CD-ROM INCLUDED

CD-ROM contains an extensive library of real-world, enterprise-proven sample code.
