Vjekoslav Nesek's Weblog: " I concurr with your feelings on JXTA. When it was first released I downloaded it and was very dissapointed with the API, it runs against everything Java stands for. The beauty of AWT and many other java API's is how simple it is! You only care about what you want to do, what you don't care about you don't have to deal with. JXTA makes u have have to know about loads of things you don't care about. Also I've never had much luck making JXTA actually work, whenever a new relase of JXTA comes out, I download it and try it out and always end up dissapointed. JXTA is a great idea with terrible execution. If only JXTA had been implemented as beautifully as JINI everyone would be using it! "
