|Transaction Processing and Distributed Computing in the Internet Age
The last few years brought many new developments in areas
of Transaction Processing (TP) and Distributed Computing (DC).
This talk aims to introduce those developments and put them in
perspective. Many areas of computing have influenced the trends
in TP and DC: Client-Server Computing, Database Management,
Object-oriented Programming, Groupware, Internet and Processor
Architectures, to name a few. While most computer professionals
would be aware of these influencing factors in a general sense,
mostly they tend to be unaware of their significance on Transaction
Processing in general and Electronic Commerce in particular. The
emergence of the web and Java has also had a dramatic influence
on TP and DC.
In addition to covering these topics, the talk will also address some of the debates in the TP and DC communities on the appropriate paradigms for program to program communications, and the role of TP monitors in the world of web servers and feature-rich relational database management systems. The talk will analyze the topics that the industrial and academic research communities have focussed on, and the gaps between their work and the developments in the commercial world.
