Excellent book!
The book explains in very clear language almost every aspect of JXTA P2P programming and gives a good overview of all common JXTA concepts (Pipes, advertisements, discovery, peergroups). You'll learn how to design, implement, test and deploy your JXTA P2P programs. The book does a great job by identifying and providing solutions to common P2P pitfalls. I recommend this book to every programmer out there. If you are serious about writing JXTA programs this is the book to get.

A must read if you want to learn about JXTA
I learned many new things about JXTA reading this book. Overall, I would say that this is the best JXTA coverage I've seen in any book. So, if you're looking for a JXTA book I believe you'll be extremely pleased with this book.

I'd been looking for a JXTA book for some time, but I didn't want a simple quick reference that left me wondering how to code for JXTA applications. I also didn't care to read through a API reference in order to understand what JXTA was all about. This book is something completely and impressively different.

This is a great book for newcomers to JXTA, though I suspect anyone who's developed in Java will be able to follow along quite well. In fact, it's the author's writing style that makes learning JXTA almost effortless. The examples are numerous, easy to follow. The authors frequently tie the concepts together nicely and it's plain to see how the examples may be incorporated into larger applications. I like that approach.

Another thing I especially appreciated was the author's effort to provide useful tips for solving real-world problems. I can hardly imagine buying another JXTA book because I believe I've found most, if not all, of what I need.

The best book on JXTA available
JXTA in a Nutshell contains lot of information into not a lot of space. It is the best book on the market for learning JXTA. It is worth reading, even if it is your first JXTA book. The book is fairly complete, with a full reference to the JXTA Java API and the JXTA protocols. There is a great deal of valuable information in the book, and it will serve quite well as a desktop reference.
The book is organized well, leading the user through the JXTA
core concepts. I particularly appreciate the way the book
has been orginized making it easier to find the specific information I want (discovery, pipe, peergroup, etc). In addition, I also liked the extra sections dealing with the
JXTA protocol specification to better understand JXTA.
In all, this book is the only JXTA book I need, but it will doubtless be one that I refer to repeatedly as I develop with the JXTA platform.
