[standards-jig] More JNG ramblings

Yup.  One of JXTAs core transports is XML.  Plus, all the actual JXTA
protocol data is XML.  It's pretty neat.

In addition, they're tackling security and other issues that we're just now
taking a serious stab at. The maturity level of both our protocols seems to
be just about even.  Another nice thing is that JXTA is really looking at
file sharing ala gnutella while we're coming from IM so there is not much
overlap in what we would each bring to a collaboration.

I'm not promoting JXTA any more than other options but think its another
great way to go.  I definitely know what you mean about not enough time to
go around.  :)

I've been interested in it for some time. There are so many broad
protocols that I want to investigate for ideas or possible integration
into Jabber (I love doing research), but until I get paid to do such a
thing, it's all on my spare time.

But JXTA does look very interesting, and I'll probably get around to
researching it in depth in about 3 months.

Didn't know JXTA used XML for its protocol. But then, I might be
confusing JXTA with J2EE.
