Project SAXTA (the acronym SAXTA is derived from SAtellite JXTAâ„¢) is a new, open network dedicated to the sharing of high-resolution NASA Earth observation data sets such as Landsat and ASTER data. SAXTA is using a decentralized JXTA P2P network architecture that enables users, Earth science scientists, and educators all over the world to freely access and share Earth data.
The JXTA community had another great presence at JavaOne. The Ricoh/Genius Bytes JXTA P2P Office app won a Duke award for most innovative Java application. The OpenJavaEE/Glassfish community announced Project Shoal. Project Shoal implements a secure and
scalable framework for clustering appserver instances using the JXTA Technology.
JXTA vision is to abstract the Internet into a multitude
of user's defined virtual p2p network overlays allowing
Java applications to transparently roam from multiple
network locations or connectivities while still remaining
