About the

Thrift-based distributed software 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 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.

What's inside

  • Complete coverage of Thrift's IDL
  • Building and serializing complex user-defined types
  • Plug-in protocols, transports, and data compression
  • Creating cross-language services with RPC and messaging systems

About the Reader

Readers should be comfortable with a language like Python, Java, or C++ and the basics of service-oriented or microservice architectures.
