Douglas Jensen's Annotated List of Recommended Distributed Computing System Books The third edition of this best-selling text incorporates the major recent developments in distributed systems technology.

All chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, with emphasis on the Internet, intranets, the Web and middleware. Other new topics include: fault modelling and fault tolerance, distributed objects and distributed multimedia systems.

There is increased emphasis on algorithms and the discussion of security has been brought forward in the text and integrated with other related technologies. Unlike the previous editions, prior knowledge of UNIX is not required to follow the text. As with previous editions, this book is intended to provide knowledge of the principles and practice of distributed system design.

Information is conveyed in sufficient depth to allow readers to evaluate existing systems or design new ones. Case studies illustrate the design concepts for each major topic. A comprehensive website with additional material for readers and instructors can be found at www. Until recently, the authors were jointly responsible for several undergraduate and postgraduate courses on distributed systems at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London.

George Coulouris is now an emeritus professor at Queen Mary and Westfield College and is a Senior Visiting Fellow in the Laboratory for Communications Engineering, Cambridge University, where he leads a research project on quality of service for dynamically reconfigurable multimedia systems.

He has recently undertaken research on computer-supported cooperative work and its applications, middleware for distributed multimedia and security models for groupware. She has recently carried out research on system support for computer-supported cooperative work, middleware for distributed multimedia and security models for groupware.

Tim Kindberg is a researcher at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Palo Alto, where he is investigating a web-based infrastructure for mobile computing that enables the physical world to be augmented with web resources.

He has previously led a research project on system support for computer-supported cooperative work, and has undertaken research on distributed operating systems and middleware for distributed multimedia systems. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? This new edition represents a significant update of the best-selling book, incorporating and anticipating the major developments in distributed systems technology. All chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, including emphasis on the Internet, intranets, and middleware. New material includes coverage of large-scale applications, fault modeling and fault tolerance, models of system execution, object-orientation, and distributed multimedia systems.

Discussion of security has also been brought forward in the book and integrated with other related technologies. The book includes a new chapter on distributed multimedia systems, and also provides new material on current network technologies such as IPv6, Mobile IP, and active and wireless networks.

This book is designed for programmers who need to learn the principles and practice of distributed system design. Readers should have an understanding of programming and elementary computer architecture, as well as a familiarity with basic operating system concepts, but the book does not require knowledge of networks.

I bought the book in few months but already knew. I really have it by my side ever. Such a distributed systems software enginerring is very good to know theirs concepts abroad this area. As the awareness of resource sharing and cooperation has increased, distributed systems have gained unprecedented attention.

However, designing a practical distributed application is a demanding and complicated task. Coulouris et al. This book covers various topics from fundamental concepts and principles of distributed systems to some advanced topics, such as replication and distributed multimedia systems. For each topic, the authors provide information in sufficient depth and breadth for readers to conduct further research. The strength of the book lies in efficiently using practical examples to explain the underlying principles of distributed systems.

Helpful case studies are placed throughout the book. Another characteristic of the book is its successful and extensive use of comparison and contrast to make concepts clear. The book has eighteen chapters and each chapter is well-organized, starting with an introduction and ending with a summary. Although the authors indicate that the book is organized into five main topic areas, the actual organization is not so intuitive and consistent with those topic areas.

For example, Chapter 5, 7, and 9 discuss middleware of distributed systems, but Chapter 6 and 8 talk about system infrastructure. So I think it may be better to pick and choose each topic area, instead of following the actual organization of the book. The first four chapters of the book offer the prerequisite knowledge and fundamental concepts of distributed systems.

The authors introduce the characterization of distributed systems Chapter 1 , system models of distributed systems Chapter 2 , networks that distributed systems run on Chapter 3 , and communication protocols between processes in distributed systems Chapter 4.

These chapters are basic for understanding the following chapters. The second topic area is the middleware of distributed systems. This part covers interaction between distributed objects Chapter 5 , security in distributed systems Chapter 7 , and name services Chapter 9.

Chapter 17 offers a detailed CORBA case study to help reader better understand previous chapters about distributed middleware. The third topic area is distributed operating systems.

Although the author talks about various subareas of distributed operating systems, such as distributed file systems Chapter 8 , distributed multimedia systems Chapter 15 , and distributed shared memory Chapter 16 , the book could have included a very important part of distributed operating systems - distributed scheduling.

It is a good choice to gather distributed algorithms as an independent part, although these algorithms are used by other topic areas. Chapter 10 describes the algorithms related to time and global states, and Chapter 11 describes those related to coordination and agreement.

The final part of the book covers data sharing. In this part, Coulouris et al. With distributed transactions, the authors discuss data replication. Although there is minor problem with the organization of the book, I strongly recommend it as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate course, an introductory postgraduate course, or merely as a self-study reference.

This book mostly explains networking concepts from a point of view of MIS people. I did not find this very useful from a programming concepts point of view, For example book does not explains the fundamental of distributed transactions, concurrency and replication of distributed data.

To me it feels like networking concepts and database concepts were merged in one single book. Book in general attempts to covers a wide variety of topics. It is not very useful if you are a serious programmer in Corba or transaction management. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English.
