Synopsis: The #1 client/server book, now completely updated and expanded!

"It's as savvy, informative, and entertaining as anything you are likely to read on the subject. Client/server isn't one technology but many —remote SQL, TP, message-oriented groupware, distributed objects, and so on. Like the proverbial blind men feeling the elephant, most of us have a hard time seeing the whole picture. The authors succeed brilliantly in mapping the elephant." —Jon Udell, Byte

"Winner, Jolt Product Excellence Award." —Software Development magazine

"The scope and depth of topics covered in the Guide, with its straightforward and often humorous delivery, make this book required reading for anyone who deals with computers in today's corporate environment." —Bob Gallagher, PC Week

"Absolutely the finest book on client/server on the market today. It's got great advice, and is well-written and fun to read." —Richard Finkelstein, President of Performance Computing

The critics agree—this is the best source for anyone looking to understand and make informed decisions about client/server technology. In this Second Edition of their award-winning book, authors Orfali, Harkey, and Edwards combine detailed technical explanations with their unique brand of offbeat humor, using clever cartoons, controversial soapboxes, and witty quotes to inform, educate, and entertain.

This information-packed Survival Guide takes you on a sweeping tour of the world of client/server. From operating systems and communications, to application architectures that incorporate database, transaction processing, groupware and objects, to the Internet and the World Wide Web and their role in the new generation of client/server and object management, this book covers it all.

About the Author: ROBERT ORFALI, DAN HARKEY, and JERI EDWARDS write such exceptional books because they design, build, and evaluate client/server products for a living. Bob and Dan create client/server systems using distributed object technology for IBM. Jeri Edwards heads a multimedia server start-up called ADB MATISSE. She was previously director of development for client/server systems and TP monitors at Tandem Computers. They are also the authors of The Essential Distributed Objects Survival Guide, available from Wiley.
