This 4-day workshop prepares students to confidently use the ADAPTIVE Communication Environment (ACE) to overcome network programming complexities and challenges.
In this hands-on course, students learn how to implement interprocess communication (IPC) mechanisms using the ACE IPC service access point (SAP) classes and the acceptor/connector pattern.
The course also covers how to use a reactor in event demultiplexing and dispatching; how to implement thread-safe applications using the ACE thread encapsulation class categories; and how to identify appropriate ACE components to use for specific application needs.
To get the most out of this course, we recommend students are comfortable with the C++ language (including templates), software development in a Unix or NT environment, and client-server architecture and network programming concepts.
