I'm a experienced programmer, but a beginner to distributed programming. Therefore, I am unsure what would be the best technology to use for this project.  I'm in a microsoft/solaris environment (mostly microsoft), and I want to build a database driven client/server application that has a web interface for presentation and simple data entry.  I am thinking VC++ .net as opposed to java (rmi, ejb) for performance because there will be a great deal of number crunching involved, I dunno!  Moreover, could you recommend some reference material that could aid me or bring me up to speed?

The most outstanding question I have about distributed programming is how data from one client is communicated and sychronized between the servers (application, database) and the other clients?

Where can I find simple code examples?

There is a lot of theory behind what you are asking ... Distributed systems involve some complex algorithms and provide reasoably comfortable interface to the users ... If you are simply planning to develop a distributed systems application then read a bit about about your options and start with any of the suitable language/methodologies .. (corba, rmi, rpc, mpi etc) ...

If you want to develop a distributed system or just want to learn the internals, then I found this book very helpful
