Internet Application Development and Architectures

Internet Application Development and Architectures covers the fast-moving Internet technologies dominating the industry today. The seminar focuses on indoctrinating the attendee into the power of the Internet, or Web, from both an architecture and application development perspective. The program initially reviews the foundation of the Internet and explores just how the web works. Internet, Intranet and Extranets are explored. The evolution of the web is explored starting with the static web and advancing through today’s intergalactic web using distributed middleware such as CORBA and DCOM. Internet security and web server technologies are reviewed. Security is described along with its many variants such Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Lastly, these components are woven together to describe the role of e-commerce in the business environment and its potentials.


Internet Application Development and Architectures is designed for a broad audience which includes application developers, systems programmers, operations support, I/S management, and end users.
