RPC example from 2/4 class (on linux): first.x,
Solaris version: rpcbank.x (same), rpcbankclient.c (same), rpcbankserver.c (different format). Note: also use gcc -lnsl -lrpcsvc when compiling.
Extra example from 2/11 class (not completely tested - but compiles): rtimer.x, rtimerserver.c, rtimerclient.c (solaris version).
RMI example from 2/25 class: client.policy, listint.java (interface), icell.java (serializable data structure), list.java (server implementation), listclient.java (sample client). javac all sources, then do "rmic list". First run "rmiregistry" followed by the server "java list" - then run the client "java client". Be sure to kill the server before restarting (on Unix, do "jobs", then kill -9 %x where x is the job number). Here's the file that's not used in the final version: largeobject.java.
Another, very similar example, this time on "rationals" -i.e. fraction
objects consisting of a numerator and a denominator:
interface, server implementation, sample client, serializable object.
RMI version of bounded buffer: interface, server, producer, consumer.
First CORBA-Java example (will work on Linux/Solaris systems running jdk1.4 or later, possibly other systems): IDL interface, server implementation (produces one object), sample client, another client.
CORBA-java horse race example: idl,
Note: use "tnameserv" instead of "orbd" for the nameserver. You'll also need these animated gifs to run the programs: background horse+rider.
CORBA C++ and Java together at last!
omniORB4 configuration file
test2.idl: simple interface for testing
Visitor Pattern in CORBA:
idl interfaces. compile with idlj -fallTie
abstract visitee superclass
undergrad visitee implementation
grad visitee implementation
print visitor implementation
tuitionadjust visitor implementation
and here's the original version that doesn't use CORBA.
Inter-language operability: C++ class, C# client. C# class, C++ client
Remoting (all C#): server class, client, server config file (server activated singleton object), client config file, direct host skeleton.
Last assignment. see README. Note: colserver.java updated. The problem with floating point numbers has been fixed.
We will meet tuesday during REGULAR CLASS HOURS. The assignment is due. You are required to attend.
P.S. if you are having difficulties following my lectures and examples, please come and see me.
