Item description for Distributed Event-Based Systems by Gero Mühl...

In today's world, services and data are integrated in ever new constellations, requiring the easy, flexible and scalable integration of autonomous, heterogeneous components into complex systems at any time.

Event-based architectures inherently decouple system components. Event-based components are not designed to work with specific other components in a traditional request/reply mode, but separate communication from computation through asynchronous communication mechanisms via a dedicated notification service.

Mhl, Fiege, and Pietzuch provide the reader with an in-depth description of event-based systems. They cover the complete spectrum of topics, ranging from a treatment of local event matching and distributed event forwarding algorithms, through a more practical discussion of software engineering issues raised by the event-based style, to a presentation of state-of-the-art research topics in event-based systems, such as composite event detection and security. Their presentation gives researchers a comprehensive overview of the area and lots of hints for future research. In addition, they show the power of event-based architectures in modern system design, thus encouraging professionals to exploit this technique in next generation large-scale distributed applications like information dissemination, network monitoring, enterprise application integration, or mobile systems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Distributed Event-Based Systems?

Excellent read, well balanced material, very close to the current state of the art technologies  Jan 15, 2008
I found this book an excellent read, with very good balance between theory and technical information -unlike what the previous reviewer thinks- (by technical information I m not implying source code, but rather systems design exploration). I ve gone though almost all of it and I was only a bit confused in a couple of parts (and when I contacted the authors they were very helpful to give me clarifications). The only reason I m not giving it 5 stars is because I am not an expert in the field
Good details  Jan 12, 2007
I think it is a good read. I had to refresh some math to better understand the presented material, but it was interesting. It is theoretical and far from practice, but was what I was looking for in the book so I am satisfifed. I enjoyed the objective view i which the material was presented.
Throrough, but not a light read  Aug 16, 2006
Caveat: I have not finished reading yet, but since no one has posted yet, wanted to share my impressions so far.
Springer has made a name for itself with books that appeal to both academics and professionals with a little academic edge. This book is no exception. It provides a very precise and thorough treatment of event-driven systems. If you are afraid of Greek letters this is probably not for you - Chapter 2 "Basics" uses temporal logic to define the precise semantics of event-based systems. On the other hand you gain in-depth insights into some of the design challenges and options when implementing your own event-driven system.
