The key to client/server computing. Transaction processing techniques are deeply ingrained in the fields of databases and operating systems and are used to monitor, control and update information in modern computer systems. This book will show you how large, distributed, heterogeneous computer systems can be made to work reliably. Using transactions as a unifying conceptual framework, the authors show how to build high-performance distributed systems and high-availability applications with finite budgets and risk. The authors provide detailed explanations of why various problems occur as well as practical, usable techniques for their solution. Throughout the book, examples and techniques are drawn from the most successful commercial and research systems. Extensive use of compilable C code fragments demonstrates the many transaction processing algorithms presented in the book. The book will be valuable to anyone interested in implementing distributed systems or client/server architectures.

This book presents the proceedings and the outcomes of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) on Integrated Technologies for Environmental Monitoring and Information Production, which was held in Marmaris, Turkey, between September 10- 14, 200 I. With the contribution of 45 experts from 20 different countries, the ARW has provided the opportunity to resolve the basic conflicts that tend to arise between different disciplines associated with environmental data management and to promote understanding between experts on an international and multidisciplinary basis. The prevailing universal problem in environmental data management (EDM) systems is the significant incoherence between data collection procedures and the retrieval of information required by the users. This indicates the presence of problems still encountered in the realization of; (1) delineation of objectives, constraints, institutional aspects of EDM; (2) design of data collection networks; (3) statistical sampling; (4) physical sampling and presentation of data; (5) data processing and environmental databases; (6) reliability of data; (7) data analysis and transfer of data into information; and (8) data accessibility and data exchange at local, regional and global scales. Further problems stem from the lack of coherence between different disciplines involved in EDM, lack of coordination between responsible agencies on a country basis, and lack of coordination on an international level regarding the basic problems and relevant solutions that should be sought.

Web Farming is an exciting new area emerging out of data warehousing and web technology. It is defined as systematic business intelligence by farming the information resources of the Web. The objective is to enhance the contents of a data warehousing system. Data warehouses are usually based upon the contents of internal operations databases. With Web Farming, the focus can be balanced with external business factors, dealing moment by moment with global changes in the business environment. Instead of surfing the Web haphazardly or gathering massive search results, Web Farming concentrates on an evolutionary process to systematically discover, acquire, structure, and disseminate content, constantly guided by business-critical intelligence to the enterprise. A four-stage methodology is suggested, along with growth strategy in the supporting architecture. Extensive coverage of standards, tools, and resources for Web Farming is given, along with an in-depth discussion of the important societal issues of privacy, confidentiality, intellectual property, and information espionage. This is the first book that focuses on the critical features of Web Farming. This book will appeal to both a technical and business audience. The technical audience is anyone interested in the use of Web technology for data warehouse development, including corporate IT professionals, database administrators, network administrators, and all others who are responsible for data warehouse and data mining. The business audience is anyone interested in establishing effective business intelligence, such as strategic planners, business development managers, competitive intelligence analysts, and market researchers. * Discusses the issues surrounding the requirements and benefits of web farming in business, as well as the practical issues of software tools, techniques, and standards that provide a wealth of knowledge for the database professional * Provides a discussion of methodology and architecture required to successfully implement web-farming techniques * Includes access to author's resource center for web farming which is updated on a regular basis and provides links, references, reviews for relevant software and software tools, and colleague interaction.
