Paradigms of Distributed Software Systems: Services, Processes and Self-organization

  • Winfried Lamersdorf
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 314)


Due to the high availability of communications networks of many kinds, most modern IT applications are today distributed – either at larger-scale (e.g. Internet-based) or as part of the growing number of local “networks of things” (i.e. intelligent devices, sensors and smart applications etc.). Therefore, any new software infrastructure – as well as software development – for such applications has to adequately adapt to that.
