Distributed Object Technology Summary

Distributed Object Technology: Concepts and Applications by Timothy W. Ryan

34899-5 Distributed objects: Information and resources wherever you need them. It's no wonder that more and more leading IS organizations are including distributed object technology in their strategic plans. Using distributed objects, you can give people throughout your organization easier ways to understand and take advantage of the critical information they need. Using distributed objects, you'll find it much easier to leverage processes across business boundaries-establishing closer connections with your customers, your suppliers, and other parts of your organization. Distributed Object Technology is a concise guide to the concepts underlying distributed objects, the competing approaches, and how they're likely to be used in real-world, networked applications.Learn how distributed object models can deliver: *Object-oriented GUIs that are significantly easier to use *Object-oriented databases that provide not just data but context *Object-oriented networks that are easier to manage and change *Object modeling techniques that help you understand and support your enterprise Understand each of the most important approaches to distributed object technologies, how they fit into your IS architecture, and how they support your business goals. Learn about: *CORBA and CORBA services *OLE remote automation support for networked objects *Objects on the Web-and how Web technologies such as URLs, HTTP and HTML lay the groundwork for a powerful, flexible distributed object architecture Whether you are a manager or a technical professional, Distributed Object Technology gives you the information you need to plan, evaluate and implement distributed object technologies that will dramatically improve the way you do business.
