Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This unique book presents a new approach to the design and implementation of modern network protocols and systems, using an object-oriented modeling technique. It shows how the concept of a modular and object-oriented architecture is an attractive and effective alternative to conventional methods. The book challenges the approach of designing completely new services and protocols for each new class of application requirements and network properties. Instead, it demonstrates how to successfully implement protocols and services by composing them from a set of already specified and tested elementary protocol objects, according to the application needs and the network environment.

A key part of the design process is a reference framework providing a common terminology and modeling technique, and the author introduces a modern framework deliberately using terminology familiar to well-known reference models. He draws on his extensive experience, using accessible case studies to look in detail at the development of object-oriented network protocols. He then goes on to investigate how to achieve improvements in communications performance and reduced costs in protocol implementation.

If you are a computer professional interested in understanding and developing reusable protocol software, then this book is an essential read. It will give you:
• a vital understanding of networks from a new perspective
• a clear vision of the benefits of object-oriented protocols
• a foundation for the object-oriented design and implementation of network communication protocols that you can put into practice, easing and accelerating the process

The book is divided into three parts: fundamentals of networks and applications; a reference framework for modular communication systems; and case studies of system designs and implementations.
• practical object-oriented method
• how to design and implement modular network protocols that are composable, reusable and extendable
• focus on current network technologies, including ATM
• up-to-date summary of applications and protocols, including multimedia and TCP/IP
• in-depth explanation of the fundamentals of network technologies, protocol mechanisms, protocol concepts and protocol architectures
• real-life case studies showing how modular network protocols provide improved performance. 0201177897B04062001

This book presents the design of a modular communication system based on object-oriented technology.

The design is not concrete, and also this book has so many unnecessary explanations about network technology.

The book seems to package the papers about software engineering though their objective is consistent.

So I think that network and system engineers would not like this book.

There are very vague concepts described in this book. It would be nice to see some concrete OO examples using UML. You probably won't find this book useful unless you are looking for some general concepts about networking and OO programming
