It indicates how one can hook up with the programmable internet with the applied sciences you already use on a daily basis. the bottom line is relaxation, the architectural sort that drives the internet. This book:

  • Emphasizes the facility of uncomplicated net applied sciences -- the HTTP program protocol, the URI naming average, and the XML markup language
  • Introduces the Resource-Oriented structure (ROA), a commonsense algorithm for designing RESTful internet services
  • Shows how a RESTful layout is less complicated, extra flexible, and extra scalable than a layout in accordance with distant strategy Calls (RPC)
  • Includes real-world examples of RESTful internet prone, like Amazon's easy garage provider and the Atom Publishing Protocol
  • Discusses net provider consumers for well known programming languages
  • Shows how one can enforce RESTful providers in 3 well known frameworks -- Ruby on Rails, Restlet (for Java), and Django (for Python)
  • Focuses on sensible matters: the way to layout and enforce RESTful net providers and clients

Time-Constrained Transaction Management: Real-Time by Nandit R. Soparkar

By Nandit R. Soparkar

Transaction processing is a longtime method for the concurrent and fault­ tolerant entry of power information. whereas this system has been profitable in regular database platforms, components resembling time-critical functions, emerg­ ing applied sciences, and a re-assessment of latest platforms recommend that the functionality, performance and applicability of transactions should be substan­ tially improved if temporal concerns are taken into consideration. that's, transactions are not merely execute in a "legal" (i.e., logically right) guy­ ner, yet they need to meet sure constraints with reference to their invocation and final touch occasions. often, those logical and temporal constraints are application-dependent, and we deal with a few primary matters for the fellow­ agement of transactions within the presence of such constraints. Our version for transaction-processing relies on extensions to verified mod­ els, and we in brief define how logical and temporal constraints might be ex­ pressed in it. For scheduling the transactions, we describe how felony schedules range from each other by way of assembly the temporal constraints. Exist­ ing scheduling mechanisms don't differentiate between criminal schedules, and are thereby insufficient in regards to assembly temporal constraints. this offers the root for looking scheduling thoughts that try to meet the temporal constraints whereas carrying on with to supply felony schedules.
