Title : JXTA v1.0 Protocols Specification
Author(s) : M. Duigou
Filename : draft-duigou-jxta-protocols-00.txt
Date : 24-Jun-02
The JXTA protocols defines a suite of six XML-based protocols that
standardize the manner in which peers self-organize into peergroups,
publish and discover peer resources, communicate, and monitor each
other. The Endpoint Routing Protocol (ERP) is the protocol by which
a peer can discover a route (sequence of hops) to send a message to
another peer potentially traversing firewalls and NATs. The
Rendezvous Protocol (RVP) is used for propagating a message within a
peergroup. The Peer Resolver Protocol (PRP) is the protocol used to
send a generic query to one or more peers, and receive a response (or
multiple responses) to the query. The Peer Discovery Protocol (PDP)
is used to publish and discover resource advertisements. The Peer
Information Protocol (PIP) is the protocol by a which a peer may
obtain status information about another peers. The Pipe Binding
Protocol (PBP) is the protocol by which a peer can establish a
virtual communication channel or pipe between one or more peers. The
JXTA protocols permit the establishment a virtual network overlay on
top of physical networks allowing peers to directly interact and
organize independently of their network location and connectivity.
The JXTA protocols have been designed to be easily implemented on
unidirectional links and asymmetric transports.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
