Whitepaper: Collaborative Congestion Control in Parallel TCP Flows

by Texas A&M UniversityJan 01, 2008

This research paper proposed a new, measurement based, collaborative congestion control scheme called TCP/DCA-C for parallel, or quasi-parallel, TCP flows, which exchange indicator signals about imminent congestion within the group in order to improve performances of all the flows in the group. In TCP/DCA-C, flows in a group can manage their data sending rates more accurately to achieve better performance by taking advantage of information that comes from other TCP flows, which experience

Whitepaper: Distributed Transactions: .NET Vs J2EE

by Texas A&M UniversityJan 01, 2008

This research paper from Texas A&M University describes the facilities available in .NET and J2EE which support distributed transactions how they are similar and how they differ. If one is executing multiple updates against a specific database, and one would like them to either all succeed or all fail as one atomic operation, there are mechanisms at the database level that allow one to commit all operations as one unit or rollback all changes if one operation fails. For a transaction to succeed,
