The JXTA Books This book presents a guided tour of the JXTA platform, including all of the critical information required to begin producing P2P solutions built on top of JXTA. Reference information on each of the JXTA protocols provides an understanding of the underlying principles of P2P networking, and examples built on the JXTA reference implementation provide the hands-on experience necessary to become fluent in JXTA technology.
This chapter is a general introduction to the topic of peer-to-peer (P2P) computing, including the history of the development of the P2P paradigm, the advantages and disadvantages of P2P, and an introduction to Project JXTA.
Advanced Programming for the Java 2 Platform
As an experienced developer on the Java platform, you undoubtedly know how fast moving and comprehensive the platform is. Its many application programming interfaces (APIs) provide a wealth of functionality for all aspects of application and system-level programming. Real-world developers never use one or two APIs to solve a problem, but bring together key functionality spanning a number of APIs. Knowing which APIs you need, which parts of which APIs you need, and how the APIs work together to create the best solution can be a daunting task.
To help you navigate the Java APIs and fast-track your project development time, this book includes the design, development, test, and deployment phases for an enterprise-worthy auction application. While the example application does not cover every possible programming scenario, it explores many common situations and the discussions leave you with a solid methodology for designing and building your own solutions.
