In this book, we showed that none of the standard distributed computing infrastructures available to date offer adequate resource control to the application developer. This conclusion is based on a comparison of standard middleware platforms, evaluating them according to transparency mechanisms offered, and according to resource control mechanisms foreseen. We have further substantiated this point through several case studies of emerging electronic commerce applications.
