Abstract:

Having timely and accurate information is essential for effective management practices and optimization of limited resources. Information is scattered throughout organizations and must be easily accessible. A new solution is needed for effective and efficient management of data in todays distributed clientserver environment. Java is destined to become a language for distributed computing. Java Development Kit JDK comes with a broad range of classes for network and database programming. Java Database Connectivity JDBC is one such class for providing clientserver database access. There are many different approaches in using JDBC, ranging from low level socket programming, to a more abstract middleware approach. This thesis will analyze three different approaches Sockets, Remote Method Invocation RMI and Commercial Middleware servers. Among the three approaches this thesis examined, database access through RMI is the most viable approach because it uses an effective distributed object model. RMI abstracts the communication interface to the level of a procedure call. Instead of working directly with sockets, programmers can invoke a remote procedure as if it resided locally.
