Alex,

Apologies for a late response to this post on JXTA Search and RDF.
Regarding the use of RDF in JXTA Search and JXTA in general, I
am very interested in discussing this further. Currently we
have looked only at using RSS as a mechanism for web sites
to register their meta data with our search hubs, but one could
imagine a more general framework for describing resources within
JXTA using RDF. Our "Advertisements" currently written in our own
XML formats, describe services that can be accessed on peers. This
seems like a good candidate for an RDF-ing, right?

Subject: RDF and Project JXTA Search

Hi,

After reading Sun's white paper[1] on JXTA Search, it appears
that they are interested in integrating their own peer-to-peer
search network with RDF (see the last page). Currently they have
defined their own 'queryspace' XML syntax, which seems pretty
pointless when RDF is already available.

What's nice is that Sun has come up with a way for metadata producers
to define what kinds of information they specialise in, which might be
instructional in the organisation of the semantic web. This could be a
nice opportunity for getting RDF used in the wild, if the hype of
JXTA is to be believed.

Anyone from Sun on this list?
