Im new to JXTA and building my first ever P2P app ! Thus Im quite eager to get it up and running. However I have certain concerns over it's functionality.
Could JXTA be used to reach peers on the whole Internet ? I mean in usual file sharing P2P apps like BearShare, Limewire, Kazaa etc you could
get your peer to connect to the whole wide Internet, not just the LAN pc's.
How do they make such a discovery possible ?
I read about Rendezvous Peers in a JXTA book, but Im not sure of the possible architecure.
Could someone explain to me how a JXTA P2P app could enable full global reach not just "limited" connectivity to the LAN ?
