The jxta adapter enables applications to “find” each other without configuration of the IP address or host name. It enables access through jxta, over the internet, even through firewalls.
This adapter has been implemented by Björn Martin in his master thesis at the Fachhochschule (University of applied science) Karlsruhe - Germany. The thesis was implemented at the init gmbh. The packages are named accordingly.
A detailed description can be found in the thesis (German) and presentations 1 & 2
