Building an e-marketplace on a peer to peer infrastructure, D.R. Ferreira and J.J.P. Ferreira

P2P architectures provide more decentralised infrastructures, accommodating a much wider range of business patterns. Based on the Sun Microsystem project JXTA the implementation of essential business services is presented and the benefits of P2P are illustrates by applying it in an industrial equipment manufacturer.
