"Java P2P Unleashed" provides a single source for Java
developers who want to develop P2P systems. The book explains the benefits of
each technology and shows how to fit the P2P "pieces" together - both in
building new systems and integrating with existing ones.starts with a discussion
of the P2P architecture, referencing similarities with existing, familiar
systems while previewing several types of P2P applications. It explains how to
plan ahead for security, routing, performance and other issues when developing a
P2P application.Each technology included in the book - JXTA, Jini, JavaSpaces,
J2EE, Web services - is approached from a P2P perspective, focusing on
implementation concerns Java developers will face while using them. The last
section includes several large-scale examples of different P2P applications -
managing content, building communities, integrating services, routing messages,
and using intelligent agents to gather information. The final chapter looks
ahead to future developments in Java P2P technologies.
