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.
The JXTA community had another great presence at JavaOne. Here are some of the highlights.
The Ricoh/Genius Bytes P2P Office app won a Duke award for most innovative Java application. P2P Office uses JXTA to securely connect printers and enable users to send documents to each other from any Internet-connected printers.
The OpenJavaEE/Glassfish community announced Project Shoal. Project Shoal implements a secure and scalable framework for clustering app server instances using the JXTA Technology. Shreedhar's Blog includes a pointer to
Shreedar and Mohamed presentation . It's a great example of open-source cross-pollination between the Glassfish and Jxta community to enable secure and dynamic appserver clustering in Glassfish.
Tim Bray had an interesting session about Sigrid :The Simplest Possible Grid Computing Platform. Sigrid implements a REST-like grid computing framework using JXTA to discover network compute resources.
Mike Duigou had a BOF session on "JXTA Security and Best Practices " that gave an overview of JXTA security features.
James Todd demoed a Netbeans Collaboration Plugin that uses JXTA to support ad hoc and dynamic developer collaborations. JXTA removes the need to deploy a IM/XMPP collaboration server to share files and projects in realtime.
A bunch of new JXTA programmers graduated from the JXTA HOL class.
I presented a Session on the use of JXTA to build highly-dynamic and scalable military battlefield networks that talked about the work that Boeing is doing with JXTA for the US Army FCS project. See my slides , and Masood's blog . As Simon Phipps mentioned, Boeing is contributing back platform enhancements to the Jxta.org community.
At the JXTA and Java.net booths, a couple of new JXTA Java apps were demoed SimpleCenter , Kerika and Verosee .
Finally, if you missed the JXTA Townhall community meeting we had a great celebration for JXTA and the cake was really good :-)
