Fast adaptation of legacy code for server hosting


Fast adaptation of legacy code for server hosting

Jiang, Weilan (2001) Fast adaptation of legacy code for server hosting. Masters thesis, Concordia University.



With the advancement of broadband networking technologies, the Internet is starting to function as a comprehensive and global infrastructure for the delivery of data and computing services. The success of such service-based Internet computing depends heavily on whether we can design and implement reliable server hosted applications in large quantity. In this thesis we study the problem of how to adapt existing legacy code for server hosting so that clients can get remote computing service through web browsers or thin-client applications. While such adaptation cannot take full advantage of the latest computing and networking technologies, it is critical for the industries to make a smooth and fast transition from the traditional in-house computing to Internet-based computing. We study the motivation of such adaptation, and provide a comprehensive survey of current industry technologies that support such adaptation. We then use Concordia Parallel programming Environment (CPPE), a comprehensive C program, as an example of legacy code, and use CORBA technology to transform it into a server-hosted distributed component globally accessible on the Internet
