    The Practical Handbook of Internet Computing analyzes a broad array of technologies and concerns related to the Internet, including corporate intranets. Fresh and insightful articles by recognized experts address the key challenges facing Internet users, designers, integrators, and policymakers. In addition to discussing major applications, it also covers the architectures, enabling technologies, software utilities, and engineering techniques that are necessary to conduct distributed computing and take advantage of Web-based services.

    The Handbook provides practical advice based upon experience, standards, and theory. It examines all aspects of Internet computing in wide-area and enterprise settings, ranging from innovative applications to systems and utilities, enabling technologies, and engineering and management. Content includes articles that explore the components that make Internet computing work, including storage, servers, and other systems and utilities. Additional articles examine the technologies and structures that support the Internet, such as directory services, agents, and policies.

    The volume also discusses the multidimensional aspects of Internet applications, including mobility, collaboration, and pervasive computing. It concludes with an examination of the Internet as a holistic entity, with considerations of privacy and law combined with technical content.

Topics of privacy, trust, policy, and law are addressed as well as the structure of the Internet and of the Web."
    Stuart Feldman, Vice President, Internet Technology, IBM, from the Foreword
