%X The original implementation of JCSP Networking is based on
the T9000 model of virtual channels across a communications
mechanism, and can be considered sufficiently adequate for
applications which are not resource constrained or liable to
connection failure. However, work undertaken has revealed a
number of limitations due to excessive resource usage, lack
of sufficient error handling, reliance on Java
serialization, and reliance on now deprecated features of
JCSP. These problems reflect badly when considering JCSP
Networking in a broader sense beyond the normal desktop.
In this talk, a brief overview on how these problems have
been overcome is presented. This will be followed by some
tutorial examples on how to use JCSP Networking 2.0. This
should be familiar to current JCSP Networking users, but new
additions to the library should make it easier for novices
to get started. The new underlying protocol is also
presented, which should enable interoperability
between various platforms beyond the Java desktop
environment. The new version of JCSP Networking is currently
available from the JCSP Subversion repository, under the
Networking\-2 branch. Details are available at
