Our society increasingly depends on computer-based systems; thenumber of applications deployed has increased dramatically inrecent years and this trend is accelerating. Many of theseapplications are expected to provide their services continuously.The Service Availability Forum has recognized this need anddeveloped a set of specifications to help software designers anddevelopers to focus on the value added function of applications,leaving the availability management functions for the middleware.

A practical and informative reference for the ServiceAvailability Forum specifications, this book gives a cohesiveexplanation of the founding principles, motivation behind thedesign of the specifications, and the solutions, usage scenariosand limitations that a final system may have. Avoiding complexmathematical explanations, the book takes a pragmatic approach bydiscussing issues that are as close as possible to the dailysoftware design/development by practitioners, and yet at a levelthat still takes in the overall picture. As a result, practitionerswill be able to use the specifications as intended.

Takes a practical approach, giving guidance on the use of thespecifications to explain the architecture, redundancy models anddependencies of the Service Availability (SA) Forum services Explains how service availability provides fault tolerance atthe service level Clarifies how the SA Forum solution is supported by open sourceimplementations of the middleware Includes fragments of code, simple example and use cases togive readers a practical understanding of the topic Provides a stepping stone for applications and systemdesigners, developers and advanced students to help them understandand use the specifications
