Continuing with the course project, in this week’s assignment, you will study ways of handling concurrent clients.
You also learn about their strengths and complications.
Using the Online Library or the Internet, research the ways of handling concurrent clients.
Consider the following situation:
In the distributed books library application, each client on registering itself with the server can serve its books, download books, and browse available books. If a client is registered to serve one or more books, then it acts as a server with a listening port.
Based on your research and readings, continue with the Microsoft Word documents attached below and add a 3 to 4 page report with abstract to complete the following tasks:
- Discuss how you will design the server in the given situation to handle multiple clients arbitrarily entering and leaving the system? Describe your server design in detail.
- Justify your design selection.
- Include a simple block diagram to describe the components of your design.
- Perl is the language selected for doing this assignment. If you are asked to pick a different language, which language would you choose for implementing your design? How is compared to Perl?
- When it comes to implementing your suggested design, describe what the most challenging task is. Why do you think so?
- Ensure this week’s project output is properly connected to the (implementation of the join list search and download) course project output.
Hint: Consider design choices such as preforking, new socket per client request, and new process per client request.
Criteria for grading
** Suggested a server design for the distributed book library application.
** Justified the design selection.
** Selected a suitable tool and created a block diagram that adequately represented the server design.
** Suggested implementation tools other than Perl.
** Discussed possible implementation challenges for the suggested design.
** Written components.( spelling, grammar, APA format and include abstract)
watch out for plagarism
