Brazil an enterprise P2P Java technology developed and tested at Sun Labs over the last two years that is now available for download. If you are a developer using Java technology, it's worth a serious look. The Brazil project is a web-based infrastructure that links people securely to information, computers and other devices leveraging existing standards and protocols. The framework enables stand-alone systems to work together within the Web space. A strong authentication architecture allows extranets to access intranets in an open environment without compromising security. The Brazil project's approach extends the endpoints of a network to new applications and smaller devices. At the same time it can incorporate legacy applications. It seems to be a much more evolved Jini API.
