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?
