Implementing the OpenEdge Reference Architecture : Overview of Distributed Architectures

The purpose of this white paper is to provide information and guidance relating to the general concepts and principles of distributed architectures. Information regarding the benefits and challenges will be provided, along with general guidelines for preparing an application to be moved to a distributed architecture. This white paper is intended for those individuals or organizations that are considering developing or transforming an application to a modern competitive architecture, but have never been exposed to the design concepts relating to a distributed architecture.

  • Not bad as a start but should definitely be labeled as a very beginner type discussion.  Otherwise I think only the "Context" session needs revision.  True architectural context is much more complicated than that and needs a better explanation of who how and why.  The mention of "different process space" is a good start, but then it went downhill from there without really explaining what that is and why that's important.
