About this book

Mastering interoperability in a computing environment consisting of different operating systems and hardware architectures is a key requirement which faces system engineers building distributed information systems. Distributed applications are a necessity in most central application sectors of the contemporary computerized society, for instance, in office automation, banking, manufacturing, telecommunication and transportation. This book focuses on the techniques available or under development, with the goal of easing the burden of constructing reliable and maintainable interoperable information systems.
The topics covered in this book include:

  • Management of distributed systems;
  • Frameworks and construction tools;
  • Open architectures and interoperability techniques;
  • Experience with platforms like CORBA and RMI;
  • Language interoperability (e.g. Java);
  • Agents and mobility;
  • Quality of service and fault tolerance;
  • Workflow and object modelling issues; and
  • Electronic commerce
.
The book contains the proceedings of the International Working Conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems II (DAIS'99), which was held June 28-July 1, 1999 in Helsinki, Finland. It was sponsored by the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP).
The conference program presents the state of the art in research concerning distributed and interoperable systems. This is a topical research area where much activity is currently in progress. Interesting new aspects and innovative contributions are still arising regularly. The DAIS series of conferences is one of the main international forums where these important findings are reported.
