General Meeting

Distributed Computing Using Java RMI

Intelligroup Inc

Tuesday, April 27, 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage Room K-161


The Internet has taken the world by storm and has created a paradigm shift in the way computers are being utilized. Increasingly more and more applications are based on distributed architectures. Integration of various technologies and networking are central to these applications.

This presentation is aimed at giving the audience exposure to distributed computing and focus on Java Remote Method Invocation (Java-RMI). The Java distributed computing architecture will be explained. A basic understanding of object oriented programming would be useful but not necessary to understand the concepts. A demo is also planned after which the source code would be discussed as well.
