API Design for C++ provides a comprehensive discussion of Application Programming Interface (API) development, from initial design through implementation, testing, documentation, release, versioning, maintenance, and deprecation. It is the only book that teaches the strategies of C++ API development, including interface design, versioning, scripting, and plug-in extensibility. Drawing from the author's experience on large scale, collaborative software projects, the text offers practical techniques of API design that produce robust code for the long term. It presents patterns and practices that provide real value to individual developers as well as organizations. API Design for C++ explores often overlooked issues, both technical and non-technical, contributing to successful design decisions that product high quality, robust, and long-lived APIs. It focuses on various API styles and patterns that will allow you to produce elegant and durable libraries. A discussion on testing strategies concentrates on automated API testing techniques rather than attempting to include end-user application testing techniques such as GUI testing, system testing, or manual testing. Each concept is illustrated with extensive C++ code examples, and fully functional examples and working source code for experimentation are available online. This book will be helpful to new programmers who understand the fundamentals of C++ and who want to advance their design skills, as well as to senior engineers and software architects seeking to gain new expertise to complement their existing talents. Three specific groups of readers are targeted: practicing software engineers and architects, technical managers, and students and educators.
Most Perl programmers were originally trained as C and Unix
programmers, so the Perl programs that they write bear a strong
resemblance to C programs. However, Perl incorporates many features
that have their roots in other languages such as Lisp. These
advanced features are not well understood and are rarely used by
most Perl programmers, but they are very powerful. They can
automate tasks in everyday programming that are difficult to solve
in any other way. One of the most powerful of these techniques is
writing functions that manufacture or modify other functions. For
example, instead of writing ten similar functions, a programmer can
write a general pattern or framework that can then create the
functions as needed according to the pattern. For several years
Mark Jason Dominus has worked to apply functional programming
techniques to Perl. Now Mark brings these flexible programming
methods that he has successfully taught in numerous tutorials and
training sessions to a wider audience.

Computation and Storage in the Cloud is the first comprehensive
and systematic work investigating the issue of computation and
storage trade-off in the cloud in order to reduce the overall
application cost. Scientific applications are usually computation
and data intensive, where complex computation tasks take a long
time for execution and the generated datasets are often terabytes
or petabytes in size. Storing valuable generated application
datasets can save their regeneration cost when they are reused, not
to mention the waiting time caused by regeneration. However, the
large size of the scientific datasets is a big challenge for their
storage. By proposing innovative concepts, theorems and algorithms,
this book will help bring the cost down dramatically for both cloud
users and service providers to run computation and data intensive
scientific applications in the cloud. Covers cost models and
benchmarking that explain the necessary tradeoffs for both cloud
providers and usersDescribes several novel strategies for storing
application datasets in the cloudIncludes real-world case studies

the technical questions that developers, managers, and researchers
have about such a critical topic. I am sure that this book will
contribute greatly to the success of securing Java applications and
deployments for e-business. --Anthony Nadalin, Java Security Lead
Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose notation
language for specifying and visualizing complex software,
especially large, object-oriented projects. Object-oriented
programming is when a programmer defines not only the data type of
a data structure, but also the types of operations/functions that
can be applied to the data structure.
An Introduction to Web Matrix provides an easy to follow treatment
of the application of this new software, which is rapidly becoming
the preferred vehicle for the teaching of website design. Written
by two experienced users, the material is presented in a way that
makes it ideal for students meeting the subject for the first time,
whether they are on an undergraduate or postgraduate course. The
scope of the book includes the functionality of the software, its
installation and application and the design and operation of
web-based material using it. Coverage of the use of HTML and SQL is
also included, as is the design and implementation of on-line
XML Schema is the new language standard from the W3C and the new
foundation for defining data in Web-based systems. There is a
wealth of information available about Schemas but very little
understanding of how to use this highly formal specification for
creating documents. Grasping the power of Schemas means going back
to the basics of documents themselves, and the semantic rules, or
grammars, that define them. Written for schema designers, system
architects, programmers, and document authors, Modeling Business
Objects with XML Schema guides you through understanding Schemas
from the basic concepts, type systems, type derivation,
inheritance, namespace handling, through advanced concepts in
The basis for an Enterprise Architecture IT project comes from the
identification of the changes necessary to implement the enterprise
or organisation s strategy, and the growing information needs
arising from this, which increases the demand for the development
of the IT system.
Design Methods for Reactive Systems describes methods and
techniques for the design of software systems particularly reactive
software systems that engage in stimulus-response behavior. Such
systems, which include information systems, workflow management
systems, systems for e-commerce, production control systems, and
embedded software, increasingly embody design aspects previously
considered alone such as complex information processing,
non-trivial behavior, and communication between different
components aspects traditionally treated separately by classic
software design methodologies. But, as this book illustrates, the
software designer is better served by the ability to intelligently
pick and choose from among a variety of techniques according to the
particular demands and properties of the system under development.
If you're an experienced programmer, you already have a rock-solid
foundation for learning Java. All you need is a resource that takes
your experience into account and explains Java's key principles and
techniques in an intelligent, efficient way.
