While interest in Web-based multiuser interaction is growing, classical server-based multiuser systems are becoming saturated. As a result, the peer-to-peer (P2P) paradigm is receiving significant attention as an alternative. The authors propose a multilayer P2P framework for developing distributed synchronous collaborative systems using asynchronous P2P platforms. They have used the framework to develop a shared Web browser using the Java programming language and the JXTA platform.
