Distributed applications with databases communicating with each other, is this possible?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a web application which has a resource hungry module. I am planning to take the module out as a separate application.

Main Application (with database A, on host A) will connect to Module B (with database B, on host B) . With data sent from Application, Module will read Database B and start working. When data has been processed, it will be returned to database A.

Is this even possible? If yes, what is the best way to do this? Set Module B as a web service?

.NET Remoting: Design and Develop Seamless Distributed Applications for the Common Language Runtime


Prior to the advent of .NET, DCOM was the underlying technology for remote communications between Windows-based applications. But DCOM is quirky to set up and configure and not as interoperable as it should be. In .NET, XML Web Services and .NET Remoting are a seamless and effective answer to the demand for tools to build distributed applications.This article provides a primer on .NET Remoting with insights into the internal plumbing. Important aspects of remoting, such as channels, object lifetime management, and clients for remote objects are discussed. In addition, some practical examples are provided.

COM+ Integration: How .NET Enterprise Services Can Help You Build Distributed Applications


The .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) is Microsoft's next-generation component technology. The CLR is a replacement for COM, but not for COM+. COM+, now called .NET Enterprise Services, is the Microsoft object runtime environment for scalable system development. This article explains how to implement and deploy COM+ configured classes using the CLR, how to access object context and call context, and the rules for managing context-relative object references. Also discussed are ways to manage precious resources such as data connections and pooled objects, and the relationship between COM+ and the new .NET remoting architecture.

Web Security: Putting a Secure Front End on Your COM+ Distributed Applications


The Internet requires that developers provide a different security model for clients than is used on a closed network. Because it would be too resource-intensive for both the client and server to prove their identity to each other, you need to look at other ways to ensure secure communications. This article covers the options, from digital certificates to public and private key encryption to Secure Sockets Layer and Web certificates. The discussion covers the installation of certificates in Microsoft Internet Information Services along with other options specific to IIS. This article was adapted from Keith Brown's Programming Windows Security (Addison-Wesley), due out in July 2000.

System.ComponentModel and distributed applications



I've just been told about how good .NET is with a broker model for distributed applications. However, I haven't found anything, only a couple of sentences about the component model and how objects can be called from different processes and possibly network places.

So, is this it? I haven't seen any books or articles about System.ComponentModel and the objects therein.

Does anybody have any ideas of how to learn to work with System.ComponentModel?

Lots of Greetings!


Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

This article lists the techniques that you can use to maximize the performance of your ASP.NET applications. It provides common issues, design guidelines, and coding tips to build optimal and robust solutions.

Business Modelling and Web Applications and extending UML

UML can be used to model a business, prior to automating it with computers. The same basic UML syntax is used, however, a number of new symbols are added, in order to make the diagrams more relevant to the business process world. A commonly-used set of these symbols is available in current versions of Rational Rose.

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.

WCF Callbacks Hanging WPF Applications

I have a WPF application that communicates with a pretty basic WCF service. Whenever a callback is issued in the middle of a request, the WPF application completely hangs.

10 Tips for Writing High-Performance Web Applications

Writing a Web application with ASP.NET is unbelievably easy. So easy, many developers don't take the time to structure their applications for great performance. In this article, I'm going to present 10 tips for writing high-performance Web apps. I'm not limiting my comments to ASP.NET applications because they are just one subset of Web applications. This article won't be the definitive guide for performance-tuning Web applications-an entire book could easily be devoted to that. Instead, think of this as a good place to start.
