A shameless trail for a new paper...

XML Europe time shall soon be upon us once again, and Techquila's Kal Ahmed shall be presenting a new paper on the application of topic maps in a peer-to-peer information sharing system.

The paper describes the implementation of a peer-to-peer system based on the JXTA P2P toolkit and TM4J topic map engine which allows peers to browse each other's topic map files and which makes a lot of use of the merging facilities of topic maps to seamlessly integrate information from many peers into a single navigable view.

The application (which will be demonstrated during the presentation) also makes use of the TouchGraph dynamic graph visualisation software and the TMNav topic map UI toolkit (currently a subproject of TM4J).

The paper will be posted to this site shortly...watch this space!
