Final Charter for Working Group

JXTA is a set of open, generalized peer-to-peer protocols that allow
any connected device (cell phone, to PDA, PC to server) on the network
to communicate and collaborate. The JXTA Community
<> has been the home of JXTA development since April
2001. The projects managed by the JXTA Community span from multiple
implementations of the JXTA Protocol Specification to numerous
applications and services implemented on top of the various reference
language binding implementations (J2SE, Personal Java, J2ME, C).

The JXTA Community wishes to submit to the IETF the JXTA Protocol
Specification encompassing the JXTA architecture, Identifiers, Message
Formats, Core/Standard Services, and Transports common to all JXTA
implementations. It is understood by the JXTA Community that upon
acceptance by the IETF, the IETF will maintain full change control over
the protocol specification. The JXTA Community will maintain change
control over the reference implementations and applications/services
built upon the JXTA Protocol Specification.

It is expected that a JXTA WG if formed will consist of currently
participating JXTA Community members and interested members from the
IETF Community.

This BOF is intended to raise and address any questions associated with
the formation of a JXTA WG as well as introduce area of work that will
be necessary for a successful completion of the working group effort.

All members of the IETF interested in JXTA are urged to join the JXTA
Community at Discussion on the subject of IETF
participation will take place on the mailing list
which may be joined from
