Palm OS Network Programming
The wireless revolution has touched off a huge demand for Palm OS network applications. However, information on how to connect a Palm is fragmented across simply the function listings in the SDK documentation, a couple of book chapters, some sample code and a few articles on the Palm website (each of which assumes prior knowledge of network applications). Palm OS Network Programming pulls all the necessary elements together in a complete guide to developing network applications for the Palm computing platform. The author assumes knowledge of Palm programming in C, but no network experience is required. The book covers concepts such as transport protocols and client-server applications and is illustrated with examples using Metrowerks CodeWarrior development environment.

Applying RCS & SCCS
This book tells the reader how to manage a complex software development project using RCS and SCCS. The book is organized in terms of increasingly complex management problems, from simple source management, to managing multiple releases, to co-ordinating teams of developers on a project involving many files and many target platforms. Few developers use RCS or SCCS alone; most groups have written their own extensions for working with multi-person, multi-platform, multi-file, multi-release projects. Part of this book, therefore, discusses how to design and build your own tools on top of RCS or SCCS. The authors present their design for TCCS, one such set of tools (available via FTP). This book also provides an overview of CVS, SPMS, and other project management environments.

Oracle Performance Tuning
The books in O'Reilly's Oracle series are authoritative -- they tell the whole story about complex topics, ranging from performance tuning to the use of packages in PL/SQL to new technologies like Power Objects. And they're independent; they're alternatives for readers who need to know how products and features really work. They're packed with real-world advice and techniques from practitioners in the field, and they come with disks containing code you can use immediately in your own applications. O'Reilly is the alternative for Oracle people who need to solve problems -- and solve them now. Performance tuning is crucial in any modern relational database management system. Too many organizations respond to Oracle performance problems by throwing money at these problems -- by buying larger and more expensive computers or by hiring expert consultants. But there's a lot you can do on your own to increase dramatically the performance of your existing system. Whatever version of Oracle you're running -- from Version 6 to Oracle8, proper tuning can save your organization a huge amount of money in additional equipment, extra memory, and hardware upgrades. The first edition of Oracle Performance Tuning became a classic for programmers, managers, database administrators, system administrators, and anyone who cares about improving the performance of an Oracle system. This second edition contains 400 pages of updated material updating on Oracle features, incorporating advice about disk striping and mirroring, RAID, client-server, distributed databases, MPPS, SMPs, and other architectures. It also includes chapters on parallel server, parallel query, backup and recovery, the Oracle Performance Pack, and more.

Learning Carbon
Carbon is one of two APIs (Application Programmer Interfaces) that Macintosh programmers can use to write applications that run native in Macr OS X. Using Carbon, you don't have to rewrite your Mac OS programs entirely to get them to take advantage of the new features in Mac OS X. Instead, all you have to rewrite is the 10 to 20 percent of the code that can't be translated to OS X. For C programmers, Apple's Carbon is the essential building block for applications on Mac OS X. With Carbon, you can use simple, traditional C interfaces to create world-class applications for a world-class operating system. Learning Carbon is designed to get you programming right away in Carbon. After orienting you with a detailed tour of a Carbon application, the book walks you through the entire process of designing and creating a complete Carbon application called Moon Travel Planner. Along the way, you'll be introduced to two pivotal development tools: Project Builder and Interface Builder. You'll learn key concepts about Carbon and Mac OS X programming, including event management, resource handling, and bundle anatomy. And you'll get direct, hands-on instruction on how to implement essential application tasks, such as managing windows, printing documents, opening and saving files, creating and responding to menu commands, providing user help, and organizing your application for easy localization in multiple countries and languages. Written by Apple insiders with access to engineers deeply involved in creating Mac OS X, Learning Carbon provides information to get you in on the ground floor of the new Mac OS X application development market.

Programming Internet Email
The Internet's killer app is not the World Wide Web or Push technologies: it is humble electronic mail. More people use email than any other Internet application. As the number of email users swells, and as email takes on an ever greater role in personal and business communication, Internet mail protocols have become not just an enabling technology for messaging, but a programming interface on top of which core applications are built. Programming Internet Email unmasks the Internet Mail System and shows how a loose federation of connected networks have combined to form the world's largest and most heavily trafficked message system. Programming Internet Email tames the Internet's most popular messaging service. For programmers building applications on top of email capabilities, and power users trying to get under the hood of their own email systems, Programming Internet Email stands out as an essential guide and reference book. In typical O'Reilly fashion, Programming Internet Email covers the topic with nineteen tightly written chapters and five useful appendixes. Following a thorough introduction to the Internet Mail System, the book is divided into five parts: Part I covers email formats, from basic text messages to the guts of MIME. Secure email message formats (OpenPGP and S/MIME), mailbox formats and other commonly used formats are detailed in this reference section. Part II describes Internet email protocols: SMTP and ESMTP, POP3 and IMAP4. Each protocol is covered in detail to expose the Internet Mail System's inner workings. Part III provides a solid API reference for programmers working in Perl and Java. Class references are given for commonly used Perl modules that relate to email and the Java Mail API. Part IV provides clear and concise examples of how to incorporate email capabilities into your applications. Examples are given in both Perl and Java. Part V covers the future of email on the Internet. Means and methods for controlling spam email and newly proposed Internet mail protocols are discussed. Appendixes to Programming Internet Email provide a host of explanatory information and useful references for the programmer and avid user alike, including a comprehensive list of Internet RFCs relating to email, MIME types and a list of email related URLs. Programming Internet Email will answer all of your questions about mail and extend your abilities into this most popular messaging frontier.

Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems: How to master the complexity
The development of any Software (Industrial) Intensive System, e.g. critical embedded software, requires both different notations, and a strong development process. Different notations are mandatory because different aspects of the Software System have to be tackled. A strong development process is mandatory as well because without a strong organization we cannot warrantee the system will meet its requirements. Unfortunately, much more is needed! Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems is dedicated to the presentation of some techniques to be used in the context of distributed and/or embedded systems. Since formal techniques rely on models, i.e. different descriptions of the system to be designed, the presented techniques are located in the first part of software development. Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems makes many connections between traditional development approaches and the latest developments in formal techniques that are known as the best solution to significantly increase the reliability of such systems. The target audience is mainly composed of professionals (engineers, researchers and teachers), and students (graduated and postgraduated) who want to have a clear understanding of how to manage the inherent complexity of critical and/or distributed systems.

The Digital Information Age: An Introduction to Electrical Engineering, International Edition
THE DIGITAL INFORMATION AGE SECOND EDITION by bestselling author Roman Kuc is designed for students considering electrical engineering as a major, and non-engineering majors interested in understanding digital communication systems. Communication between humans and smart devices takes place through sensors and actuators, with logic circuits manipulating binary data to implement useful tasks. The text then examines the basic problem of communicating audio and video data over a network connecting computers and smart devices. System operation is described from analog-to-digital conversion, signals that encode data, through the processing that extracts data from noise-corrupted signals and error correction techniques, to data packet transmission over wired and wireless networks. Basic topics from probability and digital signal processing are presented as needed and illustrated with relevant examples. Ideas are illustrated and extended by problems and projects completed in Excel, with sophistication that evolves along with the course, starting with spreadsheet formulas and graphs, through macros, to simple Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming that produces animations that simulate system operation. The accrued facility with Excel techniques is a course outcome valued by students in all majors.

Software War Stories: Case Studies in Software Management
This book provides readers with practical advice on how to handle the many issues that can arise as a software project unfolds. The book uses twelve case studies to communicate lessons learned addressing such issues as they occur in government, industrial and academic settings. These cases focus on addressing the things that can be done to establish and meet reasonable expectations. Such corrective actions often involve more than just dealing with project issues. For example, software practitioners may have to address obstacles placed in their way by procurement, organizational procedures and/or senior management. The cases by design provide readers with insight into what can be done to get back on track on large and small projects, government and industrial settings, and developmental and maintenance jobs. Both traditional and agile methods are discussed as are lean development concepts. To discuss each case, the book addresses context and ground rules associated and then addresses issues that arise as a learning experience. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter to focus attention on the issues and actions that really matter. Sample solutions will be provided in an appendix to keep the reader on track.

Current Issues in Electronic Modeling Set of Volumes 5-8: Vols. 5-8
Current Issues in Electronic Modeling (CIEM) is a series of volumes publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers dealing with modeling issues in the electronic domain. The objective is to establish a unique communication channel between academia and industry which will serve the growing needs in the field of modeling. Electronic hardware modeling is the art of describing a device, or a system, for a given purpose (simulation, synthesis, etc.) by the use of preestablished conventions (charts, languages). Modeling is attractive since it provides for simplification and abstraction of the actual object or process. Using common modeling techniques and conventions facilitates communication and information sharing and helps speed the process of design, fabrication, testing and manufacturing. Over the last several years there has been a dramatic increase in the development and use of modeling languages, models, and modeling techniques. The overall objective of this series is to provide a platform for dissemination of the basic concepts, techniques, and applications of modeling. This set of four volumes, available at a discount on the individual prices, includes the following four titles: CIEM 5 - Hardware Component Modeling (ISBN 0792396863); CIEM 6 - Meta-Modeling - Performance and Information Modeling (ISBN 0792396871); CIEM 7 - Object-Oriented Modeling (ISBN 079239688X); and, CIEM 8 - Hardware/Software Co-Design and Co-Verification (ISBN 0792396898).

Learn how to successfully implement trustworthy computing tasks using aspect-oriented programming This landmark publication fills a gap in the literature by not only describing the basic concepts of trustworthy computing (TWC) and aspect-oriented programming (AOP), but also exploring their critical interrelationships. The author clearly demonstrates how typical TWC tasks such as security checks, in-and-out conditions, and multi-threaded safety can be implemented using AOP. Following an introduction, the book covers: Trustworthy computing, software engineering, and computer science Aspect-oriented programming and Aspect.NET Principles and case studies that apply AOP to TWC Coverage includes Aspect.NET, the AOP framework developed by the author for the Microsoft.NET platform, currently used in seventeen countries. The author discusses the basics of Aspect.NET architecture, its advantages compared to other AOP tools, and its functionality. The book has extensive practical examples and case studies of trustworthy software design and code using the Aspect.NET framework. In addition, the book explores other software technologies and tools for using AOP for trustworthy software development, including Java and AspectJ. This book also includes a valuable chapter dedicated to ERATO, the author's teaching method employed in this book, which has enabled thousands of students to quickly grasp and apply complex concepts in computing and software engineering, while the final chapter presents an overall perspective on the current state of AOP and TWC with a view toward the future. Software engineers, architects, developers, programmers, and students should all turn to this book to learn this tested and proven method to create more secure, private, and reliable computing.
