If you're involved in planning IT infrastructure as a network or system architect, system administrator, or developer, this book will help you adapt your skills to work with these highly scalable, highly redundant infrastructure services.
While analysts hotly debate the advantages and risks of cloud computing, IT staff and programmers are left to determine whether and how to put their applications into these virtualized services.
For several years, it has been a goal of mine to write a book on
. While there are many good architectural books in circulation,
they are either limited in scope or lack sufficient detail to be actionable.
Early in my career, I found it difficult to translate the principles of these
books into a logical flow of events that detail the purpose of the activities,
the consumers of the outputs, and finally the control mechanisms for the
enterprise. It is my intention to make these clear and easily referenced in
Mobile interfaces need to allow the user and system to adapt their choice of communication modes according to user preferences, the task at hand, and the physical and social environment. We describe a multimodal application architecture which combines ﬁnite-state multimodal language processing, a speech-act based multimodal dialogue manager, dynamic multimodal output generation, and user-tailored text planning to enable rapid prototyping of multimodal interfaces with ﬂexible input and adaptive output. ...
Lecture "Chapter 9: Moving to design" provides students with the knowledge: Overview, understanding the elements of design, moving from analysis to design, design and integrate the network, design the application architecture,...Invite you to consult.
Lecture "Chapter 10: The traditional approach to design" provides students with the knowledge: Overview, the automation system boundary, the atructured approach to designing the application architectur, the sutomation system boundary,... Invite you to consult.
This chapter teaches you techniques for designing the overall information system application architecture with a focus on physical process models. Information application architecture and physical process modeling include techniques for distributing knowledge, processes, and communications to network locations in a distributed computing environment.
System Architecture III Distributed Objects presents of real time - software considerations; buffering example cd controller; continuous operation; example - routers and other network computing; example - transaction monitor; software reuse - application packages; reuse - objects basic definitions; objects distributed objects; object request broker (orb); interface definition language; distributed objects and the system life cycle
This dissertation investigates novel applications of the wavelet transform in the analysis and compression of audio, still images, and video. In a second focal point, we evaluate the didactic potential of multimedia–enhanced teaching material for higher education. Most recently, some theoretical surveys have been published on the potential for a wavelet–based
This design guide provides an overview of the Enterprise Branch Architecture, which is one component
in the overall Cisco Service-Oriented Network Architecture (SONA). SONA is a comprehensive
framework to provide guidelines to accelerate applications, business processes, and profitability. Based
on the Cisco SONA framework, the Enterprise Branch Architecture incorporates networked
infrastructure services, integrated services, and application networking services across typical branch
The past several years have marked a significant 'framework boom', and almost
everyone involved in web application development these days is a part of a new
generation of 'framework boomers'. Web development frameworks help jumpstart
your application by immediately delivering the core foundation and plumbing
needed to quickly turn your ideas scribbled on the whiteboard into a functional
and production-ready code.
Our goal in writing this book is to expose the inner workings of the modern
digital computer at a level that demystifies what goes on inside the machine.
The only prerequisite to
Principles of Computer Architecture
is a working
knowledge of a high-level programming language. The breadth of material has
been chosen to cover topics normally found in a first course in computer
architecture or computer organization. The breadth and depth of coverage
have been steered to also place the beginning student on a solid track for continuing
studies in computer related disciplines....
A virtual instruction set architecture (V-ISA) implemented via a processor-specific software translation layer can provide great flexibility to processor designers. Recent examples such as Crusoe and DAISY, however, have used existing hardware instruction sets as virtual ISAs, which complicates translation and optimization. In fact, there has been little research on specific designs for a virtual ISA for processors. This paper proposes a novel virtual ISA (LLVA) and a translation strategy for implementing it on arbitrary hardware.
Model-View-Controller is a popular architecture among the software developers
to build scalable and maintainable applications. While most of the time we use
the server-side MVC architecture, with the complexity increasing in the Rich
Application Development, a similar architecture is needed on the client-side, as well.
The client-side MVC architecture allows us to de-couple the presentation from the
model and the controller logic.
MVVM (Model View View Model) is a Microsoft best practices pattern for working
in WPF and Silverlight that is highly recommended by both Microsoft and industry
experts alike. This book will look at the reasons for the pattern still being slow to
become an industry standard, addressing the pain points of MVVM. It will help
Silverlight and WPF programmers get up and running quickly with this
If you're basing your livelihood on Java these days, you are going to run across at least one
enterprise application programming project; if it hasn't come upon you already, it's just around
the corner. I've been faced with more than twenty at this point in my career, and see many
more in my future. Each time I get into these projects, I find myself paging through book after
book and searching the Web, looking for the same information time after time. Additionally,
I've developed a bit of a toolkit for handling common enterprise tasks....
Modern embedded systems come with contradictory design constraints. On one hand, these systems often target mass production and battery-based devices, and therefore should be cheap and power efficient. On the other hand, they still need to show high (sometimes real-time) performance, and often support multiple applications and standards which requires high programmability.
You’ll start with the essentials of Backbone’s models, views, collections, and routers, and then dive into methods for building RESTful applications with modern technology stacks....
Artificial neural networks may probably be the single most successful technology in the last two decades which has been widely used in a large variety of applications. The purpose of this book is to provide recent advances of architectures, methodologies, and applications of artificial neural networks.
Oracle Applications DBA Field Guide provides scripts, notes, guidelines, and references to guide you safely through the crucial day-to-day administration tasks that fall within your jurisdiction.
