Hello again..

I was wondering about these 2 protocols..
I am still very new about JXTA and wherever i read, the only protocol mentioned is TCP/IP.
Does JXTA uses UDP as well in some phases?
If yes, where..?
And if no, why..?

Thank you..

There's a patch under jxta-jxse which provides a UDP transport which is well suited for JXTA. We probably update the patch after 2.5 has been released. A UDP transport would also facilitate STUN support, also not to mention it would also improve latency, over tcp.
