Erlang and OTP in Action

offers an introduction to concurrent programming

and shows how to develop distributed systems.


Erlang, together with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), is a functional

programming model designed to facilitate concurrency programming that

exploits the capabilities and speed of multi-processor hardware. Erlang applications

run fast, recover quickly from errors, integrate with other systems, and can

be updated dynamically at run-time.

Erlang and OTP in Action walks readers through the practical steps of building

systems in Erlang and integrating them with real-world C/C++, Java, and .NET

applications. Hands-on examples progress from simple to complex real-world

distributed applications and system design. Going beyond the nuts and bolts of

Erlang, the book offers a comprehensive view of how concurrency relates to SOA

and web technologies.
