The Enterprise and the Distributed Application: Alternative Architectures

Part of the Practitioner Series book series (PRACT.SER.)


In this chapter, we use a scenario often found in industry — a centralized system that does not perform as required is to be replaced by a distributed client/server system — to illustrate the different forms of possible enterprise-level application architectures and their relative merits. We use the concepts of coupling and dependency introduced in the previous two chapters in the analysis of the different architectures.
