tips on building networked applications

once upon a time, someone wrote an essay about things to keep in mind when developing or designing networked applications. (one point, or maybe the main point, being that you shouldn’t treat remote procedure calls just like local procedure calls.)

ring any bells for anyone?


Two references: [Waldo94] Waldo et al, A Note on distributed computing, Sun Technical Report Number: TR-94-2, 1994, and [Deutsch] Peter Deutsch, The Eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing.

Don't forget the original RPC paper: [Birrel84] A.D. Birrel and B.J. Nelson, "Implementing Remote Procedure Calls," ACM Transactions on Computer Systems , Vol 2, No. 1, February 1984, though that is not accessible unless you have an ACM account (sigh).
