This document details the Swarmcast Core Library external API through which
Swarmcast resource transfers can be initiated and monitored. This is a Java
API and is thus intended to be called from Java applications. Those wishing
to control Swarmcast transfers from non-Java code will either need to use the
Java Invocation API, develop CORBA (or similar) wrappers, or communicate with
a Swarmcast node through the XML messaging language none of which are covered
here. After reading this document a developer should be able to:
- Bring a Swarmcast node into existence.
- Cause a node to join an existing mesh.
- Begin a new mesh around a node.
- Download the resource made available by a mesh.
