hi everybody,

i would like to know about P2P application building using Java and relavant web site links and tutorials.

I am new to p2p app building so it would be nice if u all can share your ideas towards p2p technology, application and building using Java and how it varies from normal client/server application building using Java.

JXTA is the Java API for P2P.

Thank u Mr.Joe. Sorry for the post in two places, since i was bit confused abt where to post.

I just want to know whether JXTA is commercially wide in the industry and how far its integrated with JDK. Can i get More details on JXTA, some beginners tutorial.

We have the following specification,
we want a simple p2p client in java.
best would be jmule or emule.
g2 is as well welcome, a gnutelladonkey not needed.
It should be an open source project and the p2p client should be a plugin for another network,
All has to be in java.
I would like know how i should prepare for the above specification.

there is a complete Java-Implementation for JXTA. You can find it here. There you can also find tutorials, API-Specifications and documentations.
Starting with JXTA isnt easy. If you have problems you should search for help on the JXTA-Mailinglists.
