"This book is one of the more important contributions to the literature on 'patterns' and deserves to become a standard text on its specified area of interest."
-- Overload, September 2000
"Let me Start by saying that I highly recommend this book. If you are a reader of the expanding literature on pattern-oriented software design, rush out and buy this book! This book has the potential to be a seminal volume." --Glenn E. Mitchell II, Ph.D.: Microsoft Office Pro; www.msofficepro.com; (5/30/01)
Designing application and middleware software to run in concurrent and networked environments is a significant challenge to software developers. The patterns catalogued in this second volume of Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture (POSA) form the basis of a pattern language that addresses issues associated with concurrency and networking. The book presents 17 interrelated patterns ranging from idioms through architectural designs. They cover core elements of building concurrent and network systems: service access and configuration, event handling, synchronization, and concurrency. All patterns present extensive examples and known uses in multiple programming languages, including C++, C, and Java. The book can be used to tackle specific software development problems or read from cover to cover to provide a fundamental understanding of the best practices for constructing concurrent and networked applications and middleware.See all Product Description
