Watch out! This tutorial is over 2 years old. Please keep this in mind as some code snippets provided may no longer work or need modification to work on current systems.

The attached sample chapter from Distributed Network Systems: From Concepts to Implementations (Jia, W. and Zhou, W.,2005) is designed to introduce the client-server model and its role in the development of distributed network systems.

The chapter discusses the cooperation between clients and servers/group servers in distributed network systems, and addresses extensions to the client-server model. Service discovery, which is of crucial importance for achieving transparency in distributed network systems, is also elaborated in this chapter.
