Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Microsoft RPC interoperates with DCE RPC"...that's what you hear in the trade press. But how far does "interoperability" go? What can you really accomplish with the compatibilities between Microsoft platforms and DCE? Distributing Applications Across DCE and Windows NT from O'Reilly & Associates provides the answer. It proves that applications can indeed cross platform boundaries, and shows how to do it. The book gives steps for writing a simple, portable application and lists the complete differences between RPC support in the two environments. The programming examples share data processing across UNIX systems hosting DCE, workstations or PCs hosting Windows NT, and PCs hosting MS-DOS with or without 16-bit Windows. The book also has material for decision-makers and site administrators. Its first chapter discusses general industry problems and compares the distributed access offered by DCE/Microsoft RPC with other common solutions. Site administrators will benefit from another chapter showing how to set up configuration files to handle cross-environment applications. Topics include: Building Bridges. Developing a Cross-Environment Application. Writing Interface Definitions. Administration. Writing a Client. Writing a Server. A Remodeling Handbook for Local Applications.

About the Author

Ward Rosenberry is a technical writing consultant and author concentrating on distributed computing and computer networking technologies. Ward has distinguished himself writing about the Open Software Foundation's Distributed Computing Environment since 1989 when he helped write Digital Equipment Corporation's original DCE design documents. He has since co-authored two other O'Reilly books about distributed computing -- Understanding DCE and Distributing Applications Across DCE and Windows NT. He continues his close DCE involvement designing and developing DCE information both at Digital and at OSF and now operates a consulting firm, Rosenberry Associates, in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Ward graduated from the University of Lowell in 1979 with a B.A. in English. Ward, his wife Patricia Pestana, and their two children, William and John, live in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts. In addition to his contribution to the technical side of this book, Jim deserves some credit for keeping Ward alive by sending him an infusion of caffeine from Seattle's premier coffee roaster.
