New Nutshell Book Explores the Concepts and Practicalities of JXTA
O'Reilly Releases "JXTA In a Nutshell"

Sebastopol, CA--In February 2001, Sun Microsystems announced a paradigm
shift in Java technology called JXTA. An abbreviation of the word
"juxtapose," JXTA recognizes that some of the most functional computer
networks use peers that work side-by-side. JXTA provides an innovative
framework that allows Java programmers to take advantage of the
peer-to-peer (P2P) networking protocol without getting bogged down in
the low-level details. What makes JXTA different from other distributed
computing systems? The answer can be found in "JXTA in a Nutshell" by
Scott Oaks, Bernard Traversat, and Li Gong (O'Reilly, US $34.95). This
new title by key members of the JXTA programming team explains the
concepts behind this new technology and shows programmers how to get up
to speed with JXTA in as short a time as possible.
"Fundamental scalability and centralization forces are constraining the
Internet and are restricting its growth," says coauthor Oaks.
"Peer-to-peer networks like JXTA are essential to bring the Internet to
the next level of scalability, management, and security in order to
handle unconstrained exchanges of information between peers and the
wave of new consumer devices."
"JXTA in a Nutshell" is both a tutorial and quick reference, forged in
the spirit of O'Reilly's bestselling "Java in a Nutshell." The book
introduces major concepts in a hands-on fashion by explaining them in
context to the JXTA Shell. A complete reference to the JXTA application
bindings is included, along with the full JXTA protocol specification.
The book covers important topics such as security and how the JXTA
technology fits into the standard Java classes. "JXTA in a Nutshell"
also provides:
-An in-depth introduction to P2P networking concepts and the JXTA model
-Coverage of the JXTA Shell application, peers, pipes, and the
discovery service
-Discussion of important security considerations for JXTA applications
-A plethora of ready-to-run examples on writing efficient JXTA
applications
-A handy quick reference for all the JXTA API classes
If you're a Java expert looking to explore P2P, then you'll want to
take a close look at this new technology. But even if you're just
curious about P2P, you'll find that JXTA offers a world of
possibilities for even the simplest networking applications. The best
way to get started with JXTA is to understand the fundamentals and
start writing solid code. This book will help readers with both.
