Sample text

Each database or remote application is updated, and when all updates have completed successfully, the transactions are committed to the databases and the transaction is closed. If an error occurs, all transactions are rolled back. This may be a good approach in the few cases where applications are highly sensitive and data integrity is extremely critical. Otherwise there is little reason to create a separate layer of code when there are a variety of middleware products that easily manage these functions automatically.

That is, the remote procedure cannot be relied upon to remember data between procedure calls. Memory variables must be reinitialized Global Directory Remote Function Library Local Program Data Translation Figure 2-2. Remote procedure call Network Connection Data Translation Anatomy of an Application Server before each remote procedure call to ensure that they run correctly. This is both an advantage and disadvantage to the programmer. The programmer does not have to be concerned with the interaction of multiple users, but at the same time, any state variables must be held by the calling program and managed by the programmer.

At the same time, the application logic includes a few wrinkles that will force the designers to consider more than just data storage and retrieval. A trial project like this also minimizes the initial cost of entry. Development machines can be reconfigured to accommodate new architectures. Evaluation versions of software tools and middleware can often be obtained for free from the vendor's Internet site for 30 to 90 days. Developers usually jump at the chance to play with new technology. Just remember to emphasize that the development effort must produce tangible results in a short period of time, or the developers will be going back to their old jobs.
