JXTA Micro Edition MIDP-2.0

Last Wednesday (January 23rd), JXTA Micro Edition MIDP-2.0 was open sourced under http://jxta-jxme.dev.java.net.  Up until now JXTA on mobile devices had been pretty limited in functionality, however with the introduction of this new binding, a mobile device can participate fully as an edge device on the network without the need of a proxy.   So what does this mean you ask?

 With this new binding, a mobile device can :

  • Discover other devices and services
  • Publish advertisements about it's own resources
  • Establish direct connections to any other node
  • Create/Join private virtual domains
  • Exchange/Access content within the domain without the need of a central server(s)/service(s)

Imagine audio streaming from a home machine to a phone, or contact and calendar syncing within a virtual domain (home, office, and mobile), or true mobile-2-mobile gaming.   Imagine no further, the networking foundation is now available to enable such capabilities.
