Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Amy Pearl discusses the background of distributed computing, the functional and infrastructural assumptions and constraints it has had for the last 20 years. She explains where Internet technology is today and the advantages and limitations of a massively heterogeneous, globally scalable network of networks. She describes the Java platform, where it fits into emerging Internet technology, what problems in distributed computing it solves and where it is lacking."
