Modern information systems development places a premium on the separation of the logical application and information architecture from implementation detail. In this subject, we study the principles of high-level design and architecture of distributed information systems. We focus on current architectures that use XML and web services in development of a new generation of e-commerce applications. Topics covered include component-based design, client-server and n-tier architectures, web applications design and application development frameworks.
