Amid the flurry of new development languages, operating systems and standards, it's often easy to lose sight of the big picture. Although there is no shortage of tools, it is often real knowledge of how to use them that is lacking. In Enterprise Application Architecture with VB, ASP and MTS, Joseph Moniz shares his expertise by presenting a far-reaching framework for large-scale development that may well change the way you programme for the enterprise. This is an advanced title for serious programmers and system architects. Unlike other works that focus on a particular tool or architecture, this book lays out Moniz's own--a framework called an Enterprise Calibre System that is designed to deliver available, scalable and secure solutions. He uses an n-tier model of distributing processing but also focuses on horizontal scalability within each tier. Much of this lengthy hardcover is devoted to explanation of this approach but the author also takes the reader through creating a full-fledged enterprise management system that employs its techniques using Visual Basic, Active Server Pages and other commercial tools. The author presents a fascinating 4-dimensional data object model that is bound to open new development doors for many developers. This title's layout is textbook style, with dense text and sample code in tiny fonts. However, all of the code is available on the publisher's Web site for download. 500pp. Size: 4to Crown (9¾" x 7½")
