Distributed Computing with BEA WebLogic Server

Dean Jacobs
2003 Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research  
This paper surveys distributed computing techniques used in the implementation of BEA Web-Logic Server. It discusses how application servers provide a distributed transactional infrastructure that extends outward from backend databases. The basic treatment of data is characterized in terms of four types of clustered services that differ in the way they manage state in memory and on disk. This paper also discusses how application servers support loosely-coupled clients, both at the transport
