The objective of the course is to introduce the basic techniques of information system design and architecture. We will emphasize the use of standard design patterns in the distributed environments and concentrate on the general aspects of software systems, rather than on specific technologies or implementations.

Study targets:

The goal of the course is to acquaint students with the industry standard practices of software development, both from the computational perspective and from the architecture perspective. Special emphasis will be given to construction of distributed systems in Java.

Course outlines:

1 Software system architectures, component and distributed models 2 Software system properties, distributed systems design principles 3 RMI, remote invocation inter-process communication 4 Component models 5 Distributed components, COM/DCOM 6 Redundancy, design of reliable systems 7 Service lookup, directories, runtime composition 8 ORB, CORBA 9 ORB, CORBA, interoperability 10 Webové services, service-oriented architectures 11 Architectures for service oriented architectures 12 Asynchronous architectures, producer-consumer model 13 Agents, multi-agent systems 14 TBD

Exercises outline:

1. Task 1: Design patterns and their implementation
