Building a P2P Forum System with JXTA
Decentralized file-sharing systems like Napster [11] and Gnutella [23] have popularized the peer-to-peer approach [18,20,22], which emphasizes the use of distributed resources in a decentralized manner. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems are a relatively new addition to the large area of distributed systems. Their emphasis on sharing distributed resources, self-organization and use of discovery mechanisms sets them apart from other forms of distributed computing. Avoiding centralized components, and extensive resource/service sharing allows P2P systems to outperform other forms of distributed systems in regards to scalability [1] and robustness due to load distribution and the avoidance of bottlenecks and single points of failure. This paper has two aims; firstly it is a report on the use of JXTA in converting a server-centric legacy forum system into a P2P system. It is also an attempt to encourage others in redesigning existing client-server systems into P2P applications as a way to better ...
