From the Foreword by Jens Geyer, Apache Thrift PMC Chair
Look inside

Programmer's Guide to Apache Thrift provides comprehensive coverage of the Apache Thrift framework along with a developer's-eye view of modern distributed application architecture.

about the technology

Thrift-based distributed software systems are built out of communicating components that use different languages, protocols, and message types. Sitting between them is Thrift, which handles data serialization, transport, and service implementation. Thrift supports many client and server environments and a host of languages ranging from PHP to JavaScript, and from C++ to Go.

about the book

Programmer’s Guide to Apache Thrift provides comprehensive coverage of distributed application communication using the Thrift framework. Packed with code examples and useful insight, this book presents best practices for multi-language distributed development. You’ll take a guided tour through transports, protocols, IDL, and servers as you explore programs in C++, Java, and Python. You’ll also learn how to work with platforms ranging from browser-based clients to enterprise servers.
