Concurrent programming has become a required discipline for all programmers. Multi-core processors and the increasing demand for maximum performance and scalability in mission-critical applications have renewed interest in functional languages like Erlang that are designed to handle concurrent programming. Erlang, and the OTP platform, make it possible to deliver more robust applications that satisfy rigorous uptime and performance requirements.
Erlang and OTP in Action teaches you to apply Erlang's message passing model for concurrent programming--a completely different way of tackling the problem of parallel programming from the more common multi-threaded approach. This book walks you through the practical considerations and steps of building systems in Erlang and integrating them with real-world C/C++, Java, and .NET applications. Unlike other books on the market, Erlang and OTP in Action offers a comprehensive view of how concurrency relates to SOA and web technologies.
This hands-on guide is perfect for readers just learning Erlang or for those who want to apply their theoretical knowledge of this powerful language. You'll delve into the Erlang language and OTP runtime by building several progressively more interesting real-world distributed applications. Once you are competent in the fundamentals of Erlang, the book takes you on a deep dive into the process of designing complex software systems in Erlang.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.Vom Verlag:
Erlang and OTP in Action
offers an introduction to concurrent programming
and shows how to develop distributed systems.
Erlang, together with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), is a functional
programming model designed to facilitate concurrency—programming that
exploits the capabilities and speed of multi-processor hardware. Erlang applications
run fast, recover quickly from errors, integrate with other systems, and can
be updated dynamically at run-time.
Erlang and OTP in Action walks readers through the practical steps of building
systems in Erlang and integrating them with real-world C/C++, Java, and .NET
applications. Hands-on examples progress from simple to complex real-world
distributed applications and system design. Going beyond the nuts and bolts of
Erlang, the book offers a comprehensive view of how concurrency relates to SOA
and web technologies.< /P>
