Book Description

The executable Internet (X Internet) brings new power and sophistication in delivering services and capabilities to users. The X Internet, both the executable Internet and the extended Internet, fundamentally alters the desktop and Internet landscapes by blurring their distinction both online and off—resulting in a new era of information technology.

Authoritative and comprehensive, X Internet: The Executable and Extendable Internet examines this new paradigm from practical and strategic perspectives. It provides a roadmap for building applications that deliver X Internet capabilities. From a strategic angle, it delves into the legal aspects of using and creating this new breed of Internet applications.

Discussing computer–human interaction, the book details the development of a rich Internet environment, including graphical design, multimedia, architectures, software development techniques, tools, and information management for X-enriched systems, the components that make up many of the Web 2.0 applications so popular today. It also includes appendices that contain information on a framework for auditing X systems and various guides for using audio and video and building user interfaces.

X Internet systems offer almost limitless possibilities for building rich, interactive systems that increase productivity and dramatically enhance the user experience. X Internet: The Executable and Extendable Internet provides a thorough yet accessible understanding of this new Internet that is becoming critical to software development and systems management.

"Evolving from the current PSTN to Internet Telephony is not an easy task. … The two authors [of this book] are uniquely qualified to explain how this evolution can be architected. … Both authors have used their unique expertise to produce this very first book on the topic."
-From the Foreword by Roch Glitho, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Communications Magazine, 2003-2005
