Performance Analysis of Java-based Approaches to Distributed Computing

Full text: PDF


Distributed computing extends traditional computing by allowing computational components to be distributed across a heterogeneous network and seamlessly interoperating with each other to perform a task. This paper investigates three Java-based approaches to distributed computing viz., Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation), Java applet-servlet communication and Java Mobile Agents (MA), using performance measurement parameters like code size, latency, response time, partial failure and concurrency, ease of development and discusses the benefits of one over others. This study is aimed at investigating the suitability of the approaches in different application scenarios using a demonstrative example to analyze the performance of these approaches to distributed computing.
