[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World


Definition - What does JXTA mean?

JXTA is an open-source Java-based application development protocol set that facilitates peer-to-peer (P2P) communication for connected network devices, such as mobile phones, computers and servers.

JXTA is derived from the word juxtapose.

Techopedia explains JXTA

Developed by Sun Microsystems in 2001, JXTA is built on open-source Extensible Markup Language (XML) specifications that operates with any modern computer language, including Java SE, C/C++, C# and Java ME. JXTA uses XML messaging and is topology-independent.

In June 2002, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) declined JXTA specifications but referred JXTA to the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). JXTA continues specification advancement while participating with the IRTF P2P working group. JXTA2 was released in November 2003.
