Another endorsement of the JXTA technology by the Apache's Tuscany project to mashup and federate Web 2.0 services. This adds to this week annoucement from Samooha to open-source their JXTA-based P2P SOA Enterprise stack. Beyond the RESTfull/RESTless argument, these projects look to provide a more decentralized and ad hoc way to mashup Web services. This will likely help ease Web services deployment, management and discovery. A couple years ago I worked on a WS-Name Service proposal to build a decentralized name service for Web services (the equivalent of DNS for Web services) that was using JXTA to enable dynamic mashup of Web services. After the recent annoucement of Project Shoal using JXTA, the JXTA technology is really picking up steam in the Web 2.0 service delivery arena :-)

Project Shoal implements a novel way to cluster multiple Glassfish appserver instances using the JXTA technology. Leveraging the JXTA self-organizing and dynamic group networking infrastructure, Project Shoal allows administrators to easily deploy and dynamically group Glassfish appserver instances into a cluster. Project Shoal highly-decentralized implementation removes the traditional cluster Master single point of failures and control by decentralizing the Master function accross all instances. Any instance can take over Master responsability, if the existing Master fails. New instances can be added dynamically on-demand enabling massive-scale appserver clustering deployment.
For more on Project Shoal, check the project web page and Shreedar's blog. Open Source at its best as both the Glassfish and JXTA communities collaborated to create this innovative appserver clustering implementation.
