Distributed and Parallel Systems III winter term 2021/2022


The goal of this module is to understand the mechansims and implementations of different middleware layers based on case studies.

This module finishes the distributed and parallel systems lecture series with concrete case studies. Real middleware will be analysed and compared in terms of functiomality and implementation. For that, freely available implementations of middleware (CORBA, JAVA-RMI, .NET und MPI) will be used for analysis, comparism and experiments.
