Here is all the practical, hands-on information you need to build,

manage and maintain a heterogeneous computing environment with hardware,

software, and network equipment from a number of different vendors.

Packed with real-world case studies and proven techniques for

integrating disparate platforms, operating systems and servers, Handbook

of Heterogeneous Computing is a one-stop, non-nonsense guide that shows

you how to:

* port and develop applications in a heterogeneous environment

* manage desktops, data access, communications, and security in a

heterogeneous environment

* and build distributed heterogeneous systems

What is best for your installation? Should you standardize on the

Windows environment for both production applications and office

applications? Should you adopt the Windows NT workstation as a standard

desktop and use Windows NT as the network operating system? Handbook of

Heterogeneous Computing details the advantages and disadvantages of

these and other approaches. The book also explains:

* the arts of porting and developing applications in a heterogeneous

environment using Java, CGI/Perl, and other tools

* how to build interfaces with mainframe legacy systems

* how to use CORBA to integrate distributed database systems while at

the same time managing database gateways and interoperability

* how to manage interlan switching, multicast networking structures,

SNA-LAN integration, and all aspects of enterprise networks

* and how to use Kerberos, firewalls, PGP, RSA public keys, and other

tools to assure security in heterogeneous environments.

Heterogeneous computing is here to stay. It is therefore up to corporate

end-users to make competing products fit into their environments

efficiently, effectively and economically. Handbook of Heterogeneous

Computing gives you t
