- Course objectives
- The goal of the course is to introduce possible solutions to problems related to the design of a robust distributed application.
- Learning outcomes
- At the end of the course students should be able to:
understand and explain the abstractions provided by operating systems and middleware layers in a distributed environment
organize an analysis of the communication, replication, sharing issues,
work with information on the abstractions provided by the distributed operating system kernels,
work with information on the abstractions provided by the middleware layers,
assess specific system studies,
use modern technologies to create distributed applications.
- Distributed system concepts, benefits, problems, typical architectural patterns (single system image, client-server, service oriented).
- Technological solutions related to distributed systems (communication, replication, sharing, migration).
- Operating systems and middleware for distributed systems, provided abstractions, and specific system studies (CORBA, RMI, JMS, EJB, WS, , and others).
