While traditional databases excel at complex queries over historical data, they are inherently pull-based and therefore ill-equipped to push new information to clients. Systems for data stream management and processing, on the other hand, are natively push?oriented and thus facilitate reactive behavior. However, they do not retain data indefinitely and are therefore not able to answer historical queries. The book will first provide an overview over the different (push-based) mechanisms for data retrieval in each system class and the semantic differences between them. It will also provide a comprehensive overview over the current state of the art in real-time databases. It will first include an in-depth system survey of today's real-time databases: Firebase, Meteor, RethinkDB, Parse, Baqend, and others. Second, the high-level classification scheme illustrated above provides a gentle introduction into the system space of data management: Abstracting from the extreme system diversity in this field, it helps readers build a mental model of the available options.

This book constitutes the workshops of the 4th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, ICSOC 2006, held in Chicago, IL, USA. The two workshops presented were carefully reviewed and selected from six submissions. Both ICSOC'06 workshops were held as one-day-workshops the day before the major conference program of ICSOC'06 started. This volume contains separate descriptions of both workshops as well as all high-quality paper contributions to these two workshops.

Usually immigrants leave their native land to seek a better life elsewhere, and their successes are remembered. Ludwig Karl Ritter and Greta Adele Ritter, a married couple, and their three children left Germany in 1906 and settled in California. Their life in the United States was not altogether successful. The Ritters’ hope was to become rich, and Ludwig’s and Greta’s sojourn in this country began pleasantly enough. But a rift between them began. The Ritters’ desire for land took them to the San Joaquin Valley. With no background in farming, they established an orchard, learned to manage livestock, and built the family house. The personal costs of acquisition were great, for now there were twelve children, overwhelming work, crop failures, and costly mistakes with farm animals. Ludwig was strengthened by adversity. Greta became cynical and prayed to return to Germany; she felt isolated and overpowered by the many problems that the children presented. The thoughts and emotions and changes of attitude carried forth in the letters easily trace the changes in the minds of the couple and the direction these two individuals took in this dramatic story. Their lack of success and their harsh experiences in California constitute the tension in Going Away—going away from their native land and eventually from each other.

The 1906 San Francisco earthquake served as a magnet for many European immigrants skilled in the building trades. One such immigrant family, the Ritters, came to the San Francisco Bay area via Galveston, Texas, in search of employment. They settled in the East Bay and hoped to work, raise their children, and grow prosperous. In a series of letters written over several years to their relatives in Germany, Ludwig and Greta Ritter expressed their dreams, doubts, prejudices, and frustrations. Letters from America chronicles their experiences in California and exposes the growing conflict between husband and wife as they struggle to survive in the midst of nearly constant turmoil. Through honest and sometimes painful details, these letters reveal how the couple began to drift apart, a rift that ultimately originated from a clash of cultures. While Ludwig reveled in the American way of life and its challenges, Greta longed for the comfort of her German ethnicity and the safety it provided. It proved to be a wedge that would eventually consume them. From Texas in 1906 to California in 1920, Letters from America spans one family’s turbulent immigrant experience and the price they paid for the American dream.

For a long time, World War I has been shortchanged by the historiography of science. Until recently, World War II was usually considered as the defining event for the formation of the modern relationship between science and society. In this context, the effects of the First World War, by contrast, were often limited to the massive deaths of promising young scientists. By focusing on a few key places (Paris, Cambridge, Rome, Chicago, and others), the present book gathers studies representing a broad spectrum of positions adopted by mathematicians about the conflict, from militant pacifism to military, scientific, or ideological mobilization. The use of mathematics for war is thoroughly examined. This book suggests a new vision of the long-term influence of World War I on mathematics and mathematicians. Continuities and discontinuities in the structure and organization of the mathematical sciences are discussed, as well as their images in various milieux. Topics of research and the values with which they were defended are scrutinized. This book, in particular, proposes a more in-depth evaluation of the issue of modernity and modernization in mathematics. The issue of scientific international relations after the war is revisited by a close look at the situation in a few Allied countries (France, Britain, Italy, and the USA). The historiography has emphasized the place of Germany as the leading mathematical country before WWI and the absurdity of its postwar ostracism by the Allies. The studies presented here help explain how dramatically different prewar situations, prolonged interaction during the war, and new international postwar organizations led to attempts at redrafting models for mathematical developments.
