Match your client/server application programming requirements to your network infrastructure and corporate intranets! The worldwide shift toward client/server computing is rapidly accelerating, but too many client/server development efforts suddenly stall. The reason: difficulties in meshing the requirements of the application to the realities of the network infrastructure and the extension of the corporate network onto the Internet. Here is the first book to show how to integrate application programming requirements with the network infrastructure. It starts by setting the business requirements that must be met by the network, takes you chapter-by-chapter through the seven layers of the ISO network model, and then discusses object-oriented programming requirements and examples for a sample network implementation. Topics covered include: LAN/WAN technologies, LAN to LAN configurations, and remote node setups; gateways and middleware software needed to implement client/server over different network protocols, including both TCP and SNA; creation of object classes for socket implementation and LU6.2 verbs; implementation and security issues extending the corporate network onto the Internet. IT professionals everywhere will find this timely and clearly written book indispensable in gaining a greater understanding of network infrastructure and the client/server software that runs on top of it.
