Principles of Transaction Processing for the Systems Professional (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems)

By Philip A. Bernstein, Eric Newcomer

Principles of Transaction Processing is a transparent, concise consultant for anyone
involved in constructing functions, comparing items, designing systems,
or engineering items. This publication presents an figuring out of the internals of
transaction processing structures, describing how they paintings and the way most sensible to exploit them.
It comprises the structure of transaction processing displays, transactional
communications paradigms, and mechanisms for improving from transaction and
system failures.

Use of transaction processing platforms in enterprise, undefined, and
government is expanding quickly; the emergence of digital trade on
the net is developing new calls for. accordingly, many builders are
encountering transaction processing functions for the 1st time and need
a functional clarification of strategies. software program engineers who construct and
market working platforms, communications structures, programming instruments, and
other items utilized in transaction processing functions also will benefit
from this thorough presentation of ideas. wealthy with examples, it
describes advertisement transaction processing structures, transactional aspects
of database servers, messaging structures, net servers, and
object-oriented structures, in addition to each one in their subsystems.

* Easy-to-read descriptions of fundamentals.
* genuine global examples illustrating key points.
* makes a speciality of functional matters confronted by way of developers.
* Explains so much significant items and criteria, together with IBM's CICS, IMS, and MQSeries; X/Open's XA, STDL, and TX; BEA structures' TUXEDO; Digital's ACMS; Transarc's Encina; AT&T/NCR's best finish; Tandem's Pathway/TS; OMG's OTS; and Microsoft's Microsoft Transaction Server.

Handbook of Peer-to-Peer Networking

Peer-to-peer networking is a disruptive know-how for big scale disbursed app- cations that has lately received vast curiosity as a result of successes of peer-to-peer (P2P) content material sharing, media streaming, and telephony functions. There are a wide range of different functions below improvement or being proposed. The - derlying architectures proportion beneficial properties akin to decentralizaton, sharing of finish method assets, autonomy, virtualization, and self-organization. those positive factors represent the P2P paradigm. This guide widely addresses a wide cross-section of c- hire learn and cutting-edge stories at the nature of this paradigm from lots of specialists within the ?eld. a number of developments in details and community expertise equivalent to elevated perf- mance and deployment of broadband networking, instant networking, and cellular units are synergistic with and reinforcing the services of the P2P paradigm. there's normal expectation within the technical neighborhood that P2P networking will remain an enormous software for networked purposes and influence the evo- tion of the net. a large number of study task has led to a comparatively little while, and a transforming into neighborhood of researchers has constructed. The guide of Peer-to-Peer Networking is devoted to discussions on P2P networks and their purposes. this can be a accomplished booklet on P2P computing.

Algorithms Unlocked

By Thomas H. Cormen

Uploader's Note: Semi-Retail version.

Have you ever questioned how your GPS can locate the quickest solution to your vacation spot, determining one path from possible numerous probabilities in mere seconds? How your bank card account quantity is safe in case you make a purchase order over the web? the answer's algorithms. and the way do those mathematical formulations translate themselves into your GPS, your machine, or your shrewdpermanent mobile? This publication deals an engagingly written consultant to the fundamentals of laptop algorithms. In Algorithms Unlocked, Thomas Cormen -- coauthor of the prime university textbook at the topic -- presents a normal clarification, with restricted arithmetic, of the way algorithms permit desktops to unravel difficulties. Readers will study what desktop algorithms are, easy methods to describe them, and the way to guage them. they'll realize basic how one can look for details in a working laptop or computer; tools for rearranging details in a working laptop or computer right into a prescribed order ("sorting"); tips on how to resolve simple difficulties that may be modeled in a working laptop or computer with a mathematical constitution known as a "graph" (useful for modeling highway networks, dependencies between projects, and monetary relationships); the right way to resolve difficulties that ask questions on strings of characters comparable to DNA constructions; the fundamental ideas in the back of cryptography; basics of information compression; or even that there are a few difficulties that not anyone has discovered how you can remedy on a working laptop or computer in a cheap period of time.
