Internet provides rich opportunities for people to easily have new encounter and freely communicate with others as well as conveniently access a variety of information. This study aims to propose a new framework for person-to-person information exchange and resource sharing based on the emerging peer-to-peer technology, and to develop an innovative system that supports more sophisticated matchmaking in users’ encounter across the networks to discover a person who satisfy the users’ requirements and may exchange and share information each other. In this paper, we discuss design and development of a prototype system integrated with person discovery, file sharing, and communication support functions, by using JXTA, a peer-to-peer distributed network computing framework.
