JXTA is what industry humorists like to call a de facto standard. If you're actually asking whether it can achieve broad acceptance, that's another matter.

nobody has accepted jxta as standard. then , why you have grooves & magi ? if it is standard , then why intel , hp , microsoft & ibm , even o'reilly is trying to have their own standard.
Please give more explaination to prove your point.
The most important question is of end user. whether sun's technology or anybody else's , the end user should benefit.

that is true morten. but , others are also there to grab the pie of p2p technology. if everybody starts dumping their own standard , end user will suffer.

It is all about engineering, and solving problems.
Good designs that solve real problems don�t die � even if they don�t achieve mainstream success initially and don�t win the popular press�s �my words against your words� war.
Please see my other post on �mainstream success� versus �true innovations�..
JXTA stands alone today, there is no real compteitor � if you decide to spend the time to understand what it is � in solving a very real and unique problem in a very elegant (yet proven) way.

The popular press and competitor�s PR engine will make you believe otherwise, just like how Jini was �reduced� to a non-functional plug-and-play device driver attempt
... boiler plate follows...
Thank you, everyone, for a fascinating discussion this week and posting excellent questions. Congrats to the lucky winners.
Anybody who is interested in JXTA should definitely check out the open source site where everything is happening. http://www.jxta.org/ It is where I hang out. There are many commercial companies that are profiled there, complete with links to their websites and description of their products and services.
Of course, my book should also help you to get a quick start on it .
Best Regards,
Sing Li
