Design is an art form in which the designer selects from a myriad of alternatives to bring an qoptimumq choice to a user. In many complex of qoptimumq is difficult to define. Indeed, the users systems the notion themselves will not agree, so the qbestq system is simply the one in which the designer and the user have a congruent viewpoint. Compounding the design problem are tradeoffs that span a variety of technologies and user requirements. The electronic business system is a classically complex system whose tradeoff criteria and user views are constantly changing with rapidly developing underlying technology. Professor Milutinovic has chosen this area for his capstone contribution to the computer systems design. This book completes his trilogy on design issue in computer systems. His first work, qSurviving the Design of a 200 MHz RISC Microprocessorq (1997) focused on the tradeoffs and design issues within a processor. His second work, qSurviving the Design of Microprocessor and Multiprocessor Systemsq (2000) considers the design issues involved with assembling a number of processors into a coherent system. Finally, this book generalizes the system design problem to electronic commerce on the Internet, a global system of immense consequence.The customer possesses a credit card; - Merchant is present with an e-commerce site; - Transaction Gateway Provider is present; ... an institution that has provided the customer with the credit card account, which is capable to authorize the credit cards and transactions. ... as well as the data concerning the credit card payment; - After all the data are set, they are sent to the merchanta#39;s server; - Using someanbsp;...
