Enterprise server developers have always had to cope with feeling inferior to their mainframe cousins. Until now. In this book, I will provide you with the means to create an available, scalable, and secure enterprise system. I will show you how to divide your system both logically and physically, so as to distribute the processing and not the data - the ultimate goal of Enterprise Architecture.

I will introduce you to my n-sphere architecture which allows you to efficiently scale your system whilst leaving the data centralized and focused. Using this design, I will then teach you how to construct totally reusable 'Enterprise Caliber Data Objects' that have the ability to track the complete history of their data, allowing for unlimited undo's. Using these Data objects, I will show you how to efficiently construct business objects and applications, and how to deploy them across the enterprise. All the code in this book is available for you to download and study.
