Fallacies of Distributed Computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclo

Fallacies of Distributed Computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclo
The Fallacies of Distributed Computing are a set of assumptions that L. Peter Deutsch and others at Sun Microsystems (now Oracle Corporation) originally asserted programmers new to distributed applications invariably make. These assumptions ultimately prove false, resulting either in the failure of the system, a substantial reduction in system scope, or in large, unplanned expenses required to redesign the system to meet its original goals.[citation needed] The fallacies[edit] The fallacies are summarized below:[1] Effects of the fallacies[edit] History[edit] See also[edit] References[edit] External links[edit] Related:  Java

Better Java Web Frameworks I have been doing web application framework development for a long time. In my first experience, we developed a “Web Application Framework“, to ease development so that even a business user could write an application. As the years passed, I never saw any business user writing applications because of the fact that this job belongs to programmers. Today some 4GL or DSL tools are still on the search of the same promise. Before writing our own framework, we had used WebObjects development tools, for Java web development. It was a very good platform that allowed front-end GUI development from a GUI editor with a component model. Web Application Frameworks meet the web application requirements. The power of Java and richness of web technologies have produced many web frameworks (and that's not even considering internal frameworks).

Exposé Systèmes/Réseaux - Les grilles de calcul - Ingénieurs2000 - Informatique/Réseaux 3ème année - 2006/2007 Introduction Au cours de notre troisième année d'étude de la formation Informatique Réseaux de l'école d'ingénieurs Ingénieurs 2000, nous devions étudier un thême portant sur le système, le développement ou les réseaux. Cette exposé fût encadré par le Directeur de la filière M. Étienne Duris, ainsi que du Directeur de l'école, M. Dominique Revuz. Objectif Notre choix s'est porté sur la présentation d'un système de calcul parallèle en cours de popularisation: Les grilles de calcul. Depuis quelques mois voire quelques années, le Grid Computing, ou grille informatique, fait de plus en plus parler de lui dans l'univers des nouvelles technologies.

Eric Brewer (scientist) Eric A. Brewer is the main inventor of a wireless networking scheme called WiLDNet which promises to bring low-cost connectivity to rural areas of the developing world. He was made a tenured professor at UC Berkeley. Brewer received a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) from UC Berkeley where he was a member of the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity.[3] Later he earned an MS and PhD in EECS from MIT. In 1999, he was named to the MIT Technology Review TR100 as one of the top 100 innovators in the world under the age of 35.[4] Brewer is the 2009 recipient[5] of the ACM-Infosys Foundation Award in the Computing Sciences[6] "for his contributions to the design and development of highly scalable Internet services." In 2007, Brewer was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery "for the design of scalable, reliable internet services In 2013, the ETH Zurich honored him with the title Dr. sc. tech.

Threading lightly, Part 2: Reducing contention When we say a program is "too slow," we are generally referring to one of two performance attributes -- latency or scalability. Latency describes how long it takes for a given task to complete, whereas scalability describes how a program's performance varies under increasing load or given increased computing resources. A high degree of contention is bad for both latency and scalability. Why contention is such a problem Contended synchronizations are slow because they involve multiple thread switches and system calls. When multiple threads contend for the same monitor, the JVM has to maintain a queue of threads waiting for that monitor (and this queue must be synchronized across processors), which means more time spent in the JVM or OS code and less time spent in your program code. If we want to write scalable multithreaded programs, we must reduce contention for critical resources. Back to top Technique 1: Get in, get out Listing 1 demonstrates this technique. Listing 1. Listing 2.

World Community Grid - Accueil Brewer's CAP Theorem On Friday 4th June 1976, in a small upstairs room away from the main concert auditorium, the Sex Pistols kicked off their first gig at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall. There’s some confusion as to who exactly was there in the audience that night, partly because there was another concert just six weeks later, but mostly because it’s considered to be a gig that changed western music culture forever. So iconic and important has that appearance become that David Nolan wrote a book, I Swear I Was There: The Gig That Changed the World, investigating just whose claim to have been present was justified. We know three chords but you can only pick two Wednesday 19th July 2000, may not go down in popular culture with quite the same magnitude but it’s had a similar impact on internet scale business as the Sex Pistols did on music a quarter of a century earlier, for that was the keynote speech by Eric Brewer at the ACM Symposium on the Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC).

Blog Xebia France - Chroniques de la performance : J’ai été, il y a peu, confronté à un problème de performances que l’on peut qualifier d’intéressant – dans la bouche d’un expert technique, ce mot a généralement tendance à provoquer une bouffée de panique chez les plus chevronnés des managers. Je vous explique. Le programme consiste à appliquer massivement un traitement identique à un volume important de données – bref, c’est un batch. Objectif opérationnel : assurer la capacité du système à traiter 50000 dossiers par heure. L’architecture d’exécution de ce batch est relativement classique : un contrôleur est chargé d’obtenir auprès d’un service métier une liste de dossiers à traiter, de segmenter cette liste en lots, puis de soumettre les lots à un pool de threads qui vont réaliser les traitements en parallèle – chaque lot est traité dans une transaction distincte. Le traitement unitaire d’un dossier est relativement long, de l’ordre de 2 secondes ; les lots sont donc petits – 4 dossiers – pour limiter la durée des transactions. Bien.
