"Touting their newest open source project as the biggest thing
to hit the technology community since the TCP/IP protocol, Sun
Microsystems has announced the release of the JXTA distributed
"JXTA (pronounced "juxta") is Sun's latest effort to get a hold
on the peer-to-peer computing arena, the type of network computing
used by technologies such as Napster, Gnutella, and OpenNAP. The
growth and implementation of peer-to-peer computing is what Sun
euphemistically calls the "expanded Web," something which Sun hopes
JXTA will play a big part."
"Like the TCP/IP it is readily compared to, JXTA is a
communications protocol for use on any kind of network. It will
allow peer-to-peer communication and distributed computing between
any peers that are recognized on the network."
