a friend of mine talked me into doing a lecture and exercises on
Distributed Systems at "Hochschule der Medien - a university of
applied science", Stuttgart, Germany. The class level is advanced, I
believe this is called "graduate" in the US.
I looked at some material from other universities and it looks like
most DS courses are organized like this:
1. Basics of DS (Time, State, Reliability etc.)
2. Types of DS
3. Programming models for DS: Sockets based IPC, RPC, CORBA, RMI, MQ,
p2p, Grids, Agents, Jini, WebServices etc.
For the exercises, I'd like the students to pick a technology, install
the infrastructure (with my help) and do some examples.
A couple of questions:
1. Does anybody know of a lightweight MOM implementation usable in
this type of course? (iBus?). Or other lightweight implementations for
e.g. WebServices, Agents etc.?)
2. Thinking about your own DS classes: What did you really like, what
turned out to be very useful? Is the split in lecture and exercises
OK? Am I expecting too much?
3. Is there something that absolutely HAS to be covered (even so its
perhaps not mainstream yet (;-)
Besides 15 years of system development I've got some very good
literature (Ted Newards Server Side Java Programming, Wolfgang
Emmerichs Engineering Distributed Objects, Coulouris et.alii
Distributed Systems, Peer-to-Peer by Andy Oram and last but not least
Ken Birmans book for all the reliability and availability issues).
Not to forget the many messages from dist-obj about the Waldo papers,
Peter Wegener etc.
Anything I'm missing?
