Sun Microsystems has unveiled Project JXTA, an open-source framework on which solution providers can build peer-to-peer applications. Bill Joy, Sun's chief scientist, said that Sun's aim with JXTA is to provide a basic, interoperable framework on which peer to peer applications can be built. “The Web is evolving in both depth and breadth into an 'expanded Web,’ which makes it challenging to efficiently communicate and access resources on the Internet," said Mike Clary, vice president, Project JXTA. "Sun is offering a unified approach to address this next phase of distributed computing, an approach that will enable users to quickly and easily Find it, Get it, Use it." The initial release of Project JXTA is a cross-platform Java technology-based implementation, and Sun has initiated a community project to develop a C implementation.The technology and developer resources for JXTA are now available at www.JXTA.org
