Providing location transparent services with Java technologies : testing support of Open Distributed Processing transport transparencies in JINI, web services and JXTA
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis tests the presence of Open Distributed Processing (ODP) distribution transparencies in Jini, Jxta and Web Services. The thesis presents an introduction to each technology, a description of the test criteria developed, selection of prototype applications, test execution and presentation of the results. Main focus is on testing support of transparencies at the application developer and system designer level. The work has shown that all technologies support transparence types that have to do with the location of a service; location transparency and migration transparency. But when it comes to replication transparency, this is not supported by Web Services. Jini provides functions to achieve failure transparency in the JavaSpace extension; neither Web Services nor Jxta provides this.
