Abstract

This paper presents a general-purpose API to P2P network middleware. The design proposes modular, service oriented solution to this problem. The paper demonstrates that while the proposed P2P API is fairly complex because it tries to support every known P2P technology, the footprint of the middleware can be quite small because of the modu- lar, incremental nature of the API middleware. The paper also demonstrates that although service-oriented API differs signifcantly from the traditional, monolithic APIs, it can be implemented in small footprint on top of a non service- oriented, commercial platform, the Series60.
