Course objectives
At the end of the course students will be able understand application-oriented systems for faut-tolerant transaction processing based on multitasking operating systems operating in a distributed environment.
Learning outcomes
Students completing the course will be able to:
- Designing aplication systems oriented on fault tolerant transactional processing based multitasking operating systems
- Designing aplication systems oriented on distributed systems
  • Selected topics characterizing key operational functionality and their related systems whose understanding easier and more efficient design and implementation of nontrivial application (intentionally distributed) systems
  • Distributed systems, roles and principles of operating systems
  • Time and state in a distributed environment
  • Transaction processing incl. management of concurrent transactions renewal after an fault as an example of a complex application over services running operating systems
  • Deadlock concurrent activities (processes, threads, transaction,...)
  • Distributed solutions typical synchronization tasks: mutual exclusion, consensus, multicasting,...
  • Concurrency control of transaction and deadlock solutions in a distributed environment
