From video games to mobile augmented reality, 3D interaction is everywhere. But simply choosing to use 3D input or 3D displays isn´t enough: 3D user interfaces (3D UIs) must be carefully designed for optimal user experience. 3D User Interfaces: Theory and Practice, Second Edition is today´s most comprehensive primary reference to building outstanding 3D UIs. Four pioneers in 3D user interface research and practice have extensively expanded and updated this book, making it today´s definitive source for all things related to state-of-the-art 3D interaction. This edition goes far beyond VR, covering the full spectrum of emerging applications for 3D UIs, and presenting an extraordinary array of pioneering techniques and technologies. The authors combine theoretical foundations, analysis of devices and techniques, empirically validated design guidelines, and much more. Throughout each chapter, they illustrate key concepts with running case studies on gaming, mobile AR, and robot teleoperation.
As this book demonstrates, service-oriented architecture (SOA) is finally becoming a concrete discipline rather than a hopeful collection of cloud charts. Based on the author´s experience rolling out an SOA at a major mobile phone company, SOA in Practice explains how SOA can simplify the creation of large-scale applications. Whether your project involves a large set of web service-based components, or is a means to connect legacy applications to more modern workflows, this book clarifies how - and whether - SOA fits your needs. In fact, this is the only book that gives you a real understanding of what SOA is about, offering a fundamental overview of what it means to realize SOA in practice without getting lost in theory. After defining SOA´s many facets, examining typical use patterns, and exploring how loose coupling helps build stronger applications, Josuttis presents a framework to help you determine when to take advantage of SOA. With SOA in Practice, you will: - Focus squarely on real deployment and technology, not just standards maps - Examine business problems to determine which ones fit an SOA approach before plastering an SOA solution on top of them - Get concrete paths for building solutions without getting trapped in the mire of changing web services details - Gain the experience of a systems analyst intimately involved with SOA Earlier books on SOA suffered from too much vision and not enough reality. This one describes the real-world problems of implementing and running an SOA in practice. Not only will you learn how to categorize different SOA layers and different SOA stages of extension, you´ll learn how performance, security, and other real-life aspects influence the business case of SOA and the way a SOA is realized.If you´re serious about SOA, rely on the experience of someone who´s been in the trenches and achieved success. You´ll find it with SOA in Practice. This book demonstrates service-oriented architecture (SOA) as a concrete discipline rather than a hopeful collection of cloud charts. Built upon the author´s firsthand experience rolling out a SOA at a major corporation, SOA in Practice explains how SOA can simplify the creation and maintenance of large-scale applications. Whether your project involves a large set of Web Services-based components, or connects legacy applications to modern business processes, this book clarifies how -- and whether -- SOA fits your needs.
