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
If you’re new to AutoCAD and still trying to figure out the basics, then put down this
book and find a nice AutoCAD primer. You won’t be happy here. To truly benefit from
this book, you need a sound understanding of AutoCAD, and you need to have mastered
Optical Switching Networks describes all the major switching paradigms developed for
modern optical networks, discussing their operation, advantages, disadvantages, and
implementation. Following a review of the evolution of optical wavelength division
multiplexing (WDM) networks, an overview of the future of optical networks is set out.
This case study center’s on a large banking organization destined to develop a customer relationship data warehouse
in order to meet competitive demands and improve its customer service and profitability. Key business activities,
scoping process leading to development of the Data Warehouse will be discussed along with reference to technical
architecture, but, not the data base layout and related metrics owing to paper space limitations .Due to competitive
nature of financial business, name of the Bank in question will not be disclosed....
Service-oriented architecture, or SOA, is a hot topic in business today. You may have read about service-oriented
architectures and are wondering how they can affect your business as well as how they can be of use to
you. By looking at it from both a real-world perspective as well as a technical perspective, you will forge a
solid understanding of service-oriented architecture from which you can jump off to implementing this technology
within your business.
Private cloud computing is a very hot topic, but there remains a lot of mystery around the subject.
What is a private cloud? What are the technical and business reasons to deploy one? How
do I design one that focuses on service delivery? Does Microsoft have such an offering?
This book exactly answers those questions, and provides step-by-step instructions on how
to build a Microsoft private cloud that can serve as an IT-service-delivery virtualization infrastructure
based on Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012.
The Contract Manager Web server accepts HTTP and HTTPS requests and supplies HTTP and HTTPS
responses. It routes requests to the proper Java Servlet, which processes the request and passes it to the
appropriate resource in the Contract Manager Application server. The response from the Application server is
sent back to the Web Server and is directed to the appropriate Java Server Page (JSP). The Web Server
uses the JSP and the data from the response to create the HTML page that is sent back to the requesting
client.Contract Manager uses either JBoss or WebLogic for an Application server.
In the nineteenth century, scientists, mathematician, engineers and innovators started
investigating electromagnetism. The theory that underpins wireless communications was
formed by Maxwell. Early demonstrations took place by Hertz, Tesla and others. Marconi
demonstrated the first wireless transmission. Since then, the range of applications has
expanded at an immense rate, together with the underpinning technology. The rate of
development has been incredible and today the level of technical and commercial maturity
is very high.
This book discusses an emerging approach to
architecture in which building performance is a
guiding design principle. This architecture places
broadly defined performance above, or on a par
with, form-making; it utilizes digital technologies of
quantitative and qualitative performance-based
simulation to offer a comprehensive new approach
to the design of the built environment.
Next, a few words about our strategy. It is well recognized now that one has to go beyond
the Einstein-Hilbert action for gravity, both from the experimental viewpoint (eg.,because of
Dark Energy) and from the theoretical viewpoint (eg., because of the UV incompleteness
of quantized Einstein gravity, and the need of its uniﬁcation with the Standard Model of
In our approach, the origin of inﬂation is purely geometrical, ie. is closely related to
space-time and gravity.
This book covers a wide range of topics relating to advanced industrial robotics, sensors and automation technologies. Although being highly technical and complex in nature, the papers presented in this book represent some of the latest cutting edge technologies and advancements in industrial robotics technology.
Information Systems are the software and hardware systems that support dataintensive
applications. One of the most critical stages of an Information System
development cycle is the System Design stage. During this stage the architecture,
components, modules, interfaces and system data are defined and modeled in order to
fulfill the respective requirements that the developed Information System should
We planned the first edition of this book on a ‘need to know’
basis, its primary object being to provide students and medical
and dental practitioners with the knowledge essential for an
informed approach to the prevention and treatment of viral
infections. We aimed also at supplying just enough basic virology
to underpin the more practical aspects—clinical manifestations,
epidemiology, pathogenesis, immune responses, and so
forth. And not least, we tried our best to make the text as readable
as is possible, given the highly technical nature of some of
The SAS In-Database technology described in this paper relates to a variety of environments, including grid, blade
servers, and event management containers. The focus here is on its application to database management systems.
The goal of the SAS In-Database initiative is not only to achieve deeper technical integration with database providers, but
to also extend this integration to a unique and differentiated value proposition that blends the best SAS data integration
and analytics with the core strengths of databases.
In Better, Faster, Lighter Java, authors Bruce Tate and Justin Gehtland argue that the old heavyweight architectures are unwieldy, complicated, and contribute to slow and buggy application code. As an alternative means for building better applications, the authors present two "lightweight" open source architectures: Hibernate--a persistence framework that does its job with a minimal API and gets out of the way, and Spring--a container that's not invasive, heavy or complicated.
Assembly language is essentially the native language of your computer. Technically the processor of your machine understands machine code (consisting of ones and zeroes). But in order to write such a machine code program, you first write it in assembly language and then use an assembler to convert it to machine code.
This article compares and contrasts two technologies for delivering broadband wireless Internet access
services: ‘‘3G’’ vs. ‘‘WiFi’’. The former, 3G, refers to the collection of third-generation mobile technologies
that are designed to allow mobile operators to offer integrated data and voice services over mobile
networks. The latter, WiFi, refers to the 802.11b wireless Ethernet standard that was designed to support

Unique to the popular Grails web framework is its architecture. While other frameworks are built from the ground up, Grails leverages existing and proven technologies that already have advanced functionality built in. One of the key technologies in this architecture is Hibernate, on top of which Grails builds its GORM (Grails Object Relational Mapping) model layer. This provides Grails a persistence solution.
