Product Description

From the Back Cover

JXTA: Java P2P Programming provides an invaluable introduction to this new technology, filled with useful information and practical examples. It was created by members of the JXTA community, sharing their real-world experience to introduce developers to JXTA. It starts with the fundamentals of P2P and demonstrates how JXTA fulfills the P2P promise, then covers the essentials of JXTA including the protocols, the JXTA Shell, and groups. Later chapters include case studies demonstrating JXTA to synchronize data and to create distributed applications. Includes a foreward by Juan Carlos Soto, Group Marketing Manager for Project JXTA at Sun Microsystems and the Open Source Community Manager.

An excellent book 26 April 2002
By rattan mann - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has all the hallmarks of an excellent book,including simplicity
of style,and in particular,an uncanny balance between the broad
picture and the details.
The authors start by putting Project JXTA in a global context and comparing it with other technologies and indirectly hinting at the ethical and political issues involving P2P networks.And then over the next few chapters they make a very smooth and organic transition to details of various protocols and APIs.
The authors have thereby solved the classic dilemma of the forest versus the trees - either you are high up in the clouds
passively admiring the beauty of the forest or you are lost in the woods screaming for help at every step.Often authors forget this dilemma and are either lost in generalities or in details.
I heartily recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Poor Editing, Nice Introduction 9 Feb. 2004
By Enrique Pineda - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you can get past the misspellings and awkward writing style, this book presents a nice introduction to P2P networking. The book's contributors all seem to be experts in this field, so I'm surprised that they allowed the book to be released before it was properly edited.
