Istruibuted Systems Research Assigment

Research and create a short report on a relevant client server communications technology. Any topic that you may choose is fine

* Message-oriented middleware
* Java Messaging Services (JMS)
* Service-oriented Architecture (SOA)
* Open System Interconnect (OSI)
* SNMP and POP3
* File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
* Connection vs. Connectionless

As with any research report, you should introduce the subject, clearly state the significance of the area, discuss the primary research, and finish with a conclusion (even if it is minimal).
REQUIREMENT: Include a title page and table of contents. No other front matter is necessary/required (e.g. abstract).

Thanks
