The course introduces the distributed object programming model and briefly explains some important object distributed computing technologies. Web computing trends are also discussed, including the development of Servlets, JSP, JSF and EJB standards in the context of Java Enterprise Technologies. While Web and EJB components are distributed objects, they must be studied in the context of J2EE architecure. One of the main goals of this course is to emphasize J2EE architectural model as a new type of distributed computing in today's Internet world.
