Rendezvous AutoStart is not starting.

I just created a peer group with PSE enabled and I could not see the peers in the group.

After some searching, I found out that I needed a RDV for that group or peer discovery would not work.

If I explicitly make peers be RDV for that group, peer discovery works.

If I set autoStart(true) and do not make peers explicitly rdvs, NONE of the memebrs of the group will automatically be promoted to rdv and I can not see the peers inside the group. WHY?

Please help.

My bad.

I was auto-starting for the netPeerGroup instead of autostarting for the new group.

The auto-start check period is 5 minutes by default so when creating a group it's best to explicitly promote the peer that creates the group to RDV instead of relying on auto-start because you will have to wait 5 minutes for jxta to catch up.

You can, of course, change the check interval but for the first time, I really think that an explicit rdv is best.

- Peer that creates and then joins a group should be rdv for that group.
- Peer that joins a group should have auto-start enabled. It will become a rdv if it is needed to.
