  "The Knowledge Base section is a grouping of FYIs and troubleshooting FAQs. New documents are added regularly."
 Client/Server Frequently Asked Questions
 Client/Server Software Architectures--An Overview (Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University)
  The term client/server was first used in the 1980s in reference to personal computers (PCs) on a network. The actual client/server model started gaining acceptance in the late 1980s. The client/server software architecture is a versatile, message-based and modular infrastructure that is intended to improve usability, flexibility, interoperability, and scalability as compared to centralized, mainframe, time sharing computing

 Distributed Operating Systems (Alfred J. Lupper)
  This collection of Distributed Systems gives an overview of past and current projects on distributed operating systems, including some remarkable distributed file systems and distributed programming environments.
 Information Systems Meta-List (Washinton University, St Louis, Missouri)
  "This list is an attempt to provide a comprehensive set of pointers to information systems resources (particularly client/server and distributed systems) on the Internet. Though you may find general computer information here, the intent of this list is to meet the needs of professional information systems people looking for answers to technology problems. "

 InterBase Technical Information (MER Systems Inc.)
 Communications Middleware Vendors (MessageQ.Com)
 Message Oriented Middleware - a Glossary (International Middleware Association)
  "Message oriented middleware supports end-to-end business applications and process interoperability. In this approach, synchronous and/or asynchronous messages carry information and action requests between applications or between components within an application. In wide use across major industries, MOM has proven to be practical, cost-effective, and architecturally sound.
 Middleware Product Reference Guide (International Middleware Association)
 Middleware resources (Computerworld)
 Middleware resources (Database Central)
 What is Middleware? An introduction (Network Computing)
 ODBC Drivers and Vendors (Ken North)
  "Developers can choose among JDBC, ODBC, OLE DB, ADO, DAO, RDO, Oracle Glue, gateways, database engines, proprietary APIs, data-aware components and a variety of solutions for data access. The industry has evolved from monolithic, mainframe applications to client-server and distributed computing. Monolithic applications integrated presentation logic, business rules and data access logic. Today we are distributing that logic by using clients, servers, middleware and other tools. Hopefully this roadmap will explain how data access technologies fit into the picture of client-server, Web and distributed computing."
