This unit provides insights to distributed systems and applications by defining the basic issues of design, implementation and integration of such systems. Basic concepts including integration, services and SOA, operating systems of distributed systems, distributed applications development, messaging systems and middleware are covered. Students will investigate the influence of distribution on operations performed on data, resource/object management and building applications by using Microsoft .NET framework, and data transformation to deal with distribution and system integration.
