Erlang and OTP in Action
offers an introduction to concurrent programming
and shows how to develop distributed systems.
Erlang, together with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), is a functional
programming model designed to facilitate concurrency programming that
exploits the capabilities and speed of multi-processor hardware. Erlang applications
run fast, recover quickly from errors, integrate with other systems, and can
be updated dynamically at run-time.
Erlang and OTP in Action walks readers through the practical steps of building
systems in Erlang and integrating them with real-world C/C++, Java, and .NET
applications. Hands-on examples progress from simple to complex real-world
distributed applications and system design. Going beyond the nuts and bolts of
Erlang, the book offers a comprehensive view of how concurrency relates to SOA
and web technologies.
