JXTA

Network programming, as we know it, just changed ... in a profound manner. Did you feel it? Java == platform independence XML == application independence JXTA == network independence Secure End-to-End Computing in my ears: Lamb/Between Darkness and Wonder/Wonder

JXTA - Is it important or just cool? Software can be a bit boring. So where do we get our jollies? What is exciting in the software world? Well, we can all take up skydiving while doing code reviews** or we can use a new technology. Its hard to say why 'new' holds such a fascination for most of us. When a new technology saves us time or money it has a lot of pull. But something that can save...

I’ve had the same conversation with four different people this month. The conversation started when I was showing how a well-known ID can directly connect two peers. All four made the same observation: Doesn’t that go against the idea that P2P is about creating ad-hoc networks and the dynamic discovery services and resources? They have been lead to believe that P2P applications should...

For a sizeable part of Jan '04 I was on the road. First stop, bondolo and I presented a "JXTA Tutorial" at the IEEE CCNC "Consumer Networking: Closing the Digital Divide" conference. The tricky part was condensing a two day tutorial down to a single four hour session. That work aside the day went by smoothly and was extremely interactive ... the type of class I like attending. Attendance was on...

The demos we intend to show next week at Linux World include: JackNet - devices We now have a cool "crystal ball" like lamp with swirling effects, etc. that we will control via JackNet. Upon pulling down the code I noticed that the "JackNet Clan" are aiming towards a x10 implementation ... should be fun. Go - JNLP link available ... no excuses The folks at Morgan Spenser Consulting...

The inaugural JXTA Bug Day has been fun. Met some new folks and chatted with vetrans alike. The best of all situations is when this *stuff* deploys, configures and renders in the "real world" relatively seemlessly ... and this has been a re-occuring comment from folks new to JXTA which happened upon JXTA Bug Day. Cool feedback has also been that it is great to have a JXTA reference...

Starting tomorrow, 2003.12.10, we will be using MyJXTA as a means to both test the newly minted JXTA 2.2 and collaborate on ideas, observations, etc via the JXTA Bug Day. All perpsectives are welcomed so if you have a JXTA itch to scratch this is a great opportunity. Feel free to try things out and offer observations, suggest improvements, sling some code, etc. Java == platform independence...

Java WebStart is amazing. It is just as simple as that. Installation is trivial and the opportunities to endless. I just combed the JNLP Specification and am impressed with the improvements contained within since I had last tooled around with JNLP. Enough WebStart gushing ... how am I using JNLP in my day-to-day. Here's the skinny. I have a rich client that sits on top of JXTA. We've been...

To me, the secret in building systems that rock, no, better yet, monster systems, is all in the *blend*. I don't buy the silver bullet, floor wax *and* dessert topping single focussed story lines that fashionably spill out from time to time inevitably resulting in misdirected project churn regardless as to the best of intentions. Such tactics are often enamoured deeply with one or another flavor...

The recent JXTA Town Hall was informative as usual. For me, yet another <teaser>light</teaser> went off. One thing I'd like to hear more of is general P2P discussions, theories, applications complimented with JXTA implementations .. but that might be a bit of a broad topic for the occasional JXTA Town Hall. I'm not sure. This time, IRC was incorporated to include those that couldn...

JXTA 2.2-b (aka 03Q4) is upon us and normalizing out nicely. Those using previous JXTA releases are encouraged to try out JXTA 2.2 (cvs -r JXTA_2_2_STABLE) and for those new to JXTA, this is a great time to climb aboard. Sing Li has published an insightful article, titled JXTA 2: A high-performance, massively scalable P2P network, that highlights the overarching JXTA 2.x design goals coupled...

Here's the agenda for the forthcoming JXTA Town Hall of which I likely jumped the gun a bit in my ealier posting: National Association of Realtors & JXTA - Aubrey Jackson December Project JXTA 2.2 release - Mike Duigou Project JXTA update - Mohamed Abdelaziz iJXTA (JXTA - Apple Rendevous Interconnect) - Mohamed Abdelaziz Planet Lab - Bernard Traversat JDF - Calvin Cheng Embedlets - James...

This is going to be a very exciting JXTA release and now is a great time...

The next JXTA Town Hall is coming up. I like smallish, open and interactive forums. Good stuff. Aubrey Jackson will be in town to discuss the National Association of Realtors use of Project JXTA technology. In addition, a number of the Sun engineers will be sharing details on the projects they are involved with. Feel free to stop by and chat if you are in the area and if you don't happen to be...

Time for me to switch jobs. This time it looks like it is for the long term. After years of consulting I am now a full-time employee of Texas Instruments. I am in the Education and Productivity Systems group in Dallas. My new job is to lead TI into the next generation of collaborative software (and any thing else I think is cool and will make TI a company you want to buy products from). What's...

Did you ever want to do things like *remotely* turn your porch light on, feed your cat or dog, water your plants or automatically feed ... Hmmmmmm, I'm going to have to ponder on that one for a moment ... The folks at embedlets.org came away from the past JavaOne with some fresh ideas, the results of which was announced this just this week as the Global Blinker Project hosted on Project JXTA...
