XTRA JXTA: The P2P/Web Services Connectionby Richard Koman
JXTA is Sun-led project to develop an open source peer-to-peer (P2P) framework. JXTA is integral to Sun's SunONE Web services strategy. Intended to be language-agnostic, it's much more XML-based than Java-oriented, but it's something many Java developers will likely face as they develop in the context of distributed computing and services.
This package looks at some of the advanced capabilities and features available, or at least feasible, in the JXTA framework, such as search and chat and more. Perhaps more importantly, it looks at how JXTA does, indeed, tie together Web services and P2P. Learn more about JXTA, Web Services and P2P at O'Reilly's Peer-to-Peer and Web Services Conference, November 5-8 in Washington, DC.
JXTA Search: A look at the future of searching
Searching on the Web -- through an index of keywords often weeks old -- is ridiculous. JXTA Search, the marriage of P2P searching and Sun's Project JXTA, promises to turn searching into a real-time endeavor. We talk to JXTA Search developers Gene Kan and Steve Waterhouse.
Li Gong: JXTA All About Community
Leading a BOF at JavaOne 2001, JXTA engineering director Li Gong explained which P2P problems JXTA attacks, and emphasized that the project is a community effort.
