JXTA

There has been a lot of recent work on improving and simplifying the JXTA configuration process. A lot of the work has focused on the extension config package, but there are big changes in the "classic" JXTA Configuration Dialog too. But isn't the "classic" AWT config dialog obsolete? Yep, it is in most ways. We're no longer trying to put ever configuration feature into it. However the classic...

On a rainy Tuesday in October deep within Sun's Santa Clara campus the first JXTA Developer Kitchen was held. Since this was the first time that a JXTA kitchen has been held nobody was quite sure how it would turn out. If you've never been to a developer kitchen, it's worth a little explaining. It's not a tutorial and it's not a meeting. I've heard two different stories about the origin of the...

WebStart is an amazing deployment vehicle. Following is a bit of detail describing JXTA's use of JNLP (Java Network Launch Protocol) and the process it enables. Firstly, a bit about the process. JXTA builds of the following projects occur nightly in addition to quarterly releases: Platform Shell CMS MyJXTA JXTA-C Building JXTA 1 2 3 describes the techniques behind the overall build process...

I just received an email from Ray Gao of P2PJournal.com. Apparently the lobbyists are at it again. This time your MP3 player is at risk. This also opens the door to a lot of other anti-P2P shenanigans from other companies. The INDUCE Act is just plain bad to the bone. But first, let me say that I am 100% legal. I don't steal music. I buy a lot in fact (you gotta see my iTunes bill). Stealing...

The awards were given out at the end of the main session today. The winners were "The Cyclists". I got to speak to the developer of the software. Silly me forgot to write down his name, but he can be reached at mrjava @ sprint.com and the web site is www.observeit.com (site is not up yet). As Gosling said, the winner was built with a lot of weirdness and imagination. Here is the list of...

Greetings! We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them - Albert Einstein A Paper Airplane made of JXTA I got to attend Brad Neuberg's tech session on P2P Sockets and Paper Airplane. Paper Airplane is a Mozilla plugin written with JXTA. It is a great example of extending a known metaphore into the P2P world. Brad talked about a shared Wiki and...

Today we got to see the sunny side of Scott McNealy at the keynote today. I have to admit that I like to hear that man talk. The key thing that he said that got my attention was that there were 14,000 developers at JavaOne. That is almost like before the crash! Almost everything but the requisite T-Shirt lofting at the end of the talk was just icing on the cake of the Java economy(the T-Shirt...

JXTA 2.3 has shipped! All indications and casual usage indicates that performance has been amped up nicely. Some excellent new features made this cut in addition to some nice internal refactorings. Check it out already! JXTA has a shiny new button: Pretty cool. Get connected already! JXTA is going to be at JavaOne 2004 in force this year. Sweet. Hands-On lab, BoFs, booths oh my. Get...

what: Bug Day how: The discussion will take place via the MyJXTA[2] application. From the home page you will find the following resources: jnlp binaries The MyJXTA builds we will be using have been built with the JXTA J2SE 2.3rc1 so we will be "eating our own dogfood" for this Bug Day event! The JXTA IRC will also be active, but only for problems with getting online using MyJXTA. It will...

We are taking baby steps at present but I for one can not wait to turn over the deployment process, code analysis, etc. entirely to the very able hands of Maven. Here's a brief project how to to which we are actively seeking guidance from any and all the mavens out there in the crowd: MyJXTA Maven How To Java == platform independence XML == application independence JXTA == network...

Cross Gender Roleplay. I've been playing pen and paper role play games fairly consistently for almost 30 years and online RPGs on and off since Ultima Online. As someone who plays both male and female characters today I often find myself called on to answer the question. "why would a guy want to play a girl?" Well there are probably as many reasons as there are cross gender players. Although I...

On April 21st the JXTA Community will turn three years old. The "terrible twos" weren't actually too terrible and the future of JXTA looks really, really exciting. The JXTA project has gone through a lot of changes over the last three years and it's been really interesting to see how the technology has evolved. The coolest part is, of course, that the path evolution has taken has been entirely...

The entire JXTA stack build process just got a whole lot easier as descibed in the Building JXTA Wiki. Amazingly simple to be completely honest. Further, this process can be readily leveraged by any JXTA application to great advantage, all of which is described in the afore mentioned Wiki using MyJXTA as an example. So, if you have been considering "scratching a JXTA itch" here's quick pain...

Serial Killer Applications Some technologies don't gain wide adoption until there is an application used by a large number of users. We call them killer applications because they are so compelling or in fact kill a problem dead. For the personal computer it was the spreadsheet (Visicalc was the first and it was copied by the rest) and at about the same time, the word processor. What will...

Very simply, viral markets are those where one purchaser infects friends and acquaintances with their enthusiasm for a product or other wise causes them to use the product because it is required by the first...
