C++ Network Programming, Vol. I – Douglas C. Schmidt – 1st Edition


As networks, devices, and systems continue to evolve, face the unique challenge of creating reliable distributed applications within frequently changing environments. “C++ Programming, Volume 1, ” provides practical solutions for developing and optimizing distributed systems using the ADAPTIVE (ACE), a revolutionary open-source framework that runs on dozens of hardware platforms and operating systems.

This book guides software professionals through the traps and pitfalls of developing efficient, portable, and flexible networked applications. It explores the inherent design complexities of concurrent networked applications and the tradeoffs that must be considered when working to master them.

” begins with an overview of the issues and tools involved in distributed concurrent applications. The book then provides the essential design dimensions, patterns, and principles needed to develop flexible and efficient concurrent networked applications. The book’s expert author team shows you how to enhance design skills while applying C++ and patterns effectively to develop object-oriented networked applications.
