The objective of the course is to familiarize students with the concept, the architecture and basic services in a distributed system, as well as the development, installation and management of distributed applications. Laboratory hand-on experience helps students to master web-based application programming using J2EE and Web Services.
Promoting free, creative and deductive thought
Work in teams
Distributed Systems- Definitions and basic principles
DS Architecture,Cloud computing
Basic Tools and Services: Name Service, File Service
DS management algorithms
Logical time, mutual exclusion
Synchronization – replication
Web-based DS – J2EE architecture
Web Services: Architecture and technologies, standards/protocols (WSDL, SOAP, UDDI), REST calls.
Component-based IS and agile IS
Learning and Teaching Methods - Evaluation
Teaching methods: face-to-face
Use of ICT:
eclass, youtube channel
The final grade is computed as follows: written examination 50%, group programming projects 50% (usually 2, contributing 30% and 20% of the final grade respectively). To pass the course, a student should have a passing grade (at least 5) in BOTH the written exams and the group projects individually.
